Doll Pillow

I am repurposing one of Mom-Mom's dresses. The original project from this dress should be titled When Sewing Goes Bad because it is having some major issues of its own. Anyway, this is actually the secondary project coming from the repurpose. You'll have to wait until next week to see the first one. After I attempt to fix it.

It's a small doll pillow made from the bodice of the dress. I kept the original buttons and buttonholes, sewed a small rectangle, and stuffed it with batting. I was hoping it would be large enough to be used as a decorative pillow for Spenser's bed, but the darn armholes were in the way.

Quick and simple. My kind of project. Now I have to tackle the demon that is the first project. Ugh.

Happy weekending to you.

Repurposing is such a great *idea*, but in practice, it often goes wonky for me as well. The field bag I made for Eliot last month was just one such example. It looks good on the outside, just don't look too closely at the inside. :)

I'm sure you'll make it right.
Have a great weekend, friend.
