Pillow Pocket

Pillow Pocket, a photo by Krousegirl2 on Flickr.
Last night was the birthday party for my 3 nephews. Their birthdays are all within a 3 week period and they turned 3, 9, and 11. I'm super happy to report that the boys liked their pillows...I added a book, some stickers, some fun band-aids, and a pair of socks to each pocket. My sister and brother in law also liked the practicality of the pocket! Now perhaps the boys won't have books missing at bedtime?

And thank you, inquiring minds (Anna), yes, with the help of a sewing guru friend, I learned how to install a zipper in the back of these pillows!

I would love to insert the picture of the back that I have on Flickr...but I cannot figure out how to upload more than 1 picture to a blog post from Flickr!  Can anyone fill me in on that?

Again, this pattern is by Nova, and you can find it here.

  4. Awesome!!! You did the zipper! The pillows look so great.

    To insert a photo from Flickr, go to the photo and click the share button above it. Copy the HTML code (I usually do the medium size"). Then go to your blogger post composer and go to the HTML tab. You can then paste the code from Flickr wherever you what your photo, then go back to the compose tab to see it and make any adjustments.

  7. Those are so cute! I'd always had zipper issues and been a bit scared of them until I made 3 zip pouches in one evening and realized they were so easy. It's funny what we get hung up on!
