So A realized the other day that it was almost Christmas and she didn’t have anything for her friend. So, she thought about things he likes and settled on Star Wars. Then she decided she wanted to sew him a pillow like she made for herself. So off to Joann Fabrics we went. She found some fleece Star Wars fabric she liked. Easy decision!
We laid out the fabric & decided to see how we would cut it for a pillow & blanket. (Then she took a short break to write the card.) Then we used the rotary blade to cut it. Then A helped put pins in to hold the sides in place. Then we pulled out the sewing machine. A controlled the foot pedal and helped guide the fabric as we sewed the pillow.
Next came her favorite part, stuffing it! Then we grabbed her sewing kit and she helped hand sew the final opening closed.
A was so proud of her completed pillow & cannot wait to give it to him tomorrow!
