Felt Personlized Pillow

So I made a huge mistake this last week,
One which was so easy to aviod
My girlfriend's daughter's birthday party was on Sunday,
I got really excited because I wanted to try to make a personalized pillow with felt.
I didn't have a design,
I was just going with whatever came in my mind at the time
I loved the outcome,
and bragged about it to close relatives
Get to the party....
I spelled the girl's name wrong
Really Jillian?  REALLY?
I'm so mad!
They were very understanding,
but come on,
how much are they going to cherish a misspelled pillow
At least I got her intials right on the back side,,,
at least I think I did
I also had another "Ashely Order"
This time I wassure excited because she asked me to do a Chi O set of Burper and Onesie
My sister-in-law is a XO and I, having spent a fair amount of time with her friends have a certain fondness for that particular sisterhood 
Here is the Chi Omega Set
(I took the pic. before I sewn the bow on) 
Here it is finished
And seeing that I could not send the little girl a tie onesie,
 I duplicted the Bobcat on the onesie and placed bows on the sleeves,
and instead of the normal camo ribbon on the burper, I used black
(I still can't find a suitable tan color, I wonder why that is?)

  1. I L-O-V-E the Chi O stuff!! Way too cute! I'll have to keep those in mind....If only one of our friends would have a girl!

  2. How very cute! I love the custom onsies/burp cloths! As for the misspelled name, well, it happens to the best of us! :) No worries!

  3. Oh my goodness!! This almost happened to me not to long ago when I was making some barettes. I almost spit out my drink when I read this post. I think the pillow looks great.
