sproket pillow

October 28, 2011

This is the first of many sprocket pillows to come. I’ve completed this in 30 minutes (well, I had already chosen the fabrics and cut them, but that only took an additional 20 min) and after quite a bit of drink. This is so easy and a very forgiving pattern (thanks to cluck cluck sew!).

I made it for my daughter Bailey… she loves climbing things and I think this pillow will be a great stepping stool for her. The fabrics are a bit of a mixture– some recently purchased, some scraps and some from a vintage bag.

The back is corduroy (needs a bit of love from a lint brush) and I really like the design! Because it’s corduroy, it should be very sturdy as well.

I’ve got my next sprocket planned, stay tuned…
