Then we did a little slicing … a little dicing … a touch of toasting (not to mention basting, gluing and sewing). Even one of Jed’s favorite jerseys took one for the team.
And we wound up with a pillow almost good enough to eat.
It's all in Betz White's book "Warm Fuzzies" (that we borrowed from, and is probably overdue at, the library).
It wasn't a difficult project, but it did take time to collect the materials and assemble them. Normally I have enough sweaters
Where was I? Oh yes. Easy. ... The book offers templates, but the shapes are so basic I just cut them out by hand.
I even figured out the pattern for the strawberry was just a uppercase "B" without the holes.
Too bad I forgot to sew them to the pillow.
Still, Ittybit declared the Breakfast in Bed pillow good enough to eat.
And I swear it really wasn't that difficult. She even helped sew and snip.
Truly the hardest part was listening to her tell the woman at the cash register in Goodwill that all the sweaters we were buying were for a project ...
All execpt the red striped one. ...
"Mom thinks that one is pretty. She's going to wear it so she can look like bacon."
