Birthday Pillow

Somehow I have gotten myself on this "pillow" kick
....and it is really, a lot of fun

Isn't this pillow wonderful!!??!! I just love it and think everyone might need one. It is just the right splash of "Spring is on the way" that one needs when living in the Midwest. (which is one of the reasons I am very thankful to have spent this last winter in AZ) I saw this too cute pillow on Cluck, Cluck Sew (one of my favorite blogs..go check it out) and promptly added it to my never ending "to do" list.

It is a must do and when my sister-in-law, Rachel's birthday was approaching, I knew this would be the perfect gift. Her birthday is in January and she lives in Indiana....really, it was a no brainer...she needs this pillow! How does the saying go?... "it is the thought that counts" .... Because I am me and my life seems to happen to me without my participation, the pillow is still sitting here waiting to be mailed. It is finished though.. :) I am really, quite proud of this turned out fabulously...take a peek!

This is the front....obviously:
And the back....I saw a pieced back on another crafty-sewing blog and really liked the look so I pieced some strips and added a button closure on the back of mine...
I bought the pillow insert at the thrift store and picked this particular one because of the box edge...

I know the pictures aren't the best but I really, really love how this turned out! And I know that Rachel will too, if it ever makes it to her! :)
