I’ve gotten a couple of pillow orders lately! The first is a style that I’ve made before, but in the Alabama colors, since it’s an elephant:
The same customer ordered a Longhorn pillow to use as a gift. I’m pretty pleased with how this one came out! It was pretty touchy for a while as I was making it, and I wasn’t sure if it would come out looking good. But it did!
Lately, I got an order from a woman whose cat died recently. She showed me a picture of a black cat with stark orange eyes and asked me to make a pillow in resemblance to him. This one was tricky because I wasn’t sure how I wanted to shape him. I started off with a more 3D head before realizing it looked awkward in pillow-form. I also made the body square, which was more realistic, but it just didn’t look good. So I unraveled it all and decided to go for a bulkier design, which I think came out cute! And she ended up loving it, too.
Bonus: a family member’s rabbit fell sick, so I asked if there was anything I could make for her. But my family member has two rabbits, so when he asked for a blanket, I decided to make one for both of them. Couldn’t leave one left out! You can’t read the writing too well on the black-and-white, but it says “Bear,” the bunny’s name.
Happy Friday, Everyone!
