Hello Kitty

Pillow number 4 of 6, Hello Kitty!!!! This pillow will be going across the country soon to reach a niece of mine. I hope she loves it!

I was a bit nervous about making Hello Kitty due to the fact that Hello Kitty is so popular and who doesn’t know her?!  Any Hello Kitty fan can easily pick her out from the crowd and knowing this, I was afraid of making a mistake with her eyes and nose placement. The smallest misplacement could totally throw her off. Oh yeahhhh the stress was on. >=O However I think the final came out pretty good. I was very pleased with the finish pillow.

I had Google an image of Hello Kitty and used it as my layout. I used a combination of minky, velvet and felt fabric to finish the pillow. I also used my new Gingher scissor and serger that the Hubbie had got me this past week. The scissor is a bit heavy and uncomfortable but very sharp and good for corners. The serger as of now intimidates me because I’ve not learn how to thread it completely yet. O_O It will take some time. 🙂

Later on today I will be working on pillow 5. What do you think of the final pillow? 🙂

Draft Snake Update

I finished the draft snake but am unsure of how well it will work. >.< I am going to give it to my coworker to test out and if it doesn’t work well, I will redo it. I ended up using gems to help add weight and snaps for the closing ends. It’s stuffed and filled with polyester fiberfill. I hope this works and I hope she likes it!

Caydi Prototype

I just spent the last two hours making a prototype of my next pillow. I made the basic shape for it using scraps and it turned out pretty good. However, I did discover that I’m out of black fabric and Caydi needs her black hair! -_-” So I’m going to have to halt the final project until I get some more.  Can’t wait to get it done and posted. 🙂

The draft snake I’ve been working on is still a work in progress. I don’t know why it’s so hard for me! >.< I decided to use snaps for the end closures and ran out of the snaps as well so I also can’t continue it until I get some more.

I feel like I’m full of excuses today but it’s the truth! xP

Have a good day!
