A Little Lovin’ for the Boys

So these are the gifts Katrina and I gave our Valentines. First, from Katrina, a pillow (about 6″ diameter) for her Daddy. We did the letters on my sewing machine — it has this one basic font — on a piece of red wool felt. We then sewed that to a piece of tool fabric which we then made into a heart. She stuffed it and then we machine sewed it shut.

I Heart Daddy

I gave Papa a rice pillow, a la Blair. He’s been complaining about cold feet in bed so her post was perfectly timed. The outside cover is made of flannel so it’s soft as well as warm.

Love Rice Pillow

And for my little valentine I made one of Hillary‘s robots from Put-Together Book No. 2. The best part of this guy was making his control panel. Definitely look through the flickr group before you make one for inspiration. The fabric for the body is Robomatic by Jennifer Sampou — such a great little boy print — and the arms/legs and antenna are from Peas & Carrots by Sandy Klop.
