There’s a party in my pillow…

Or on my pillow?  A party quilted onto my pillow?

Party pillow does a little resting after a long night of sassing up this chair.

This is a super-fun piece of quilted pillow goodness.  I had a great time making it, and I feel like it’s an instant room brightener at a dramatic 18 inches square.  For when your sofa or bed needs a pick-me-up, you know?  Maybe your sofa knocked back a whiskey sour too many last night (that’s what my sofa favors, anyway), and it’s looking a little worse for the wear this morning–this will totally detract from the bags under its eyes and the burgeoning spot on its cushion.

Oooo, look at all that scrappy goodness.

It’s quite the grab-bag of bits of new and vintage fabric, all linen or cotton.  It’s quilted raw-edge-style onto an Essex linen/cotton blend, which has a wonderful texture, and the envelope closure back is pieced with a fun strip of cotton color.

Just look at this pillow back.

Did I mention mismatched buttons?  Oh yes.  We have those in spades here!

"No, don't touch those, Mama. Those are very magical."

In fact, this is my little button-jar impresario.  She rules the button jar with an iron fist.  She will tell you which buttons are for you and which are for Jenny the (Imaginary) Cat.  To eat for dinner!!!

If this pillow needs to grace your hungover sofa or under-the-weather bed, you can find it here.

  1. Does your 2 year old love Yo Gabba Gabba too? I was totally singing ‘there’s a part in my tummy, so yummy, so yummy’ as I read you blog title. If you have no idea what I’m talking about just ignore me. btw, I love the pillow and the curtains….great idea!

    • You know, I think I have only seen one episode ever, but it was that one! Man, does that tune have staying power! I’m kind of grateful that we live down in a hole in the middle of the woods and mountains and can’t get TV signals well, or I think I’d be singing their songs 24 hours a day–they have some amazing tunes, from what I hear, and my little one gets a LITTLE obsessive about catchy music of all kinds.

      Just visited your blog–nice! Your husband’s comment about the (adorable) Easter dress resembling Little House or a polygamist group KILLED me. SO funny! And it sounds like our little girls are just days apart in age–mine’s b-day is Dec. 17th. There’s something about having a two-year-old girl and sewing, I swear…. Some kind of cosmic connection between the two!
