Rumbly in my Tumbly

OK let's try this again! I had this all ready to post and I have no Idea what happened. Anyway this was my project for today. It started life as a Fleece tie pillow kit I bought last year. I had my Mother-in-law in mind when I bought it. So today Idecided it would be done so at least one Christmas gift was finished. Instead of making ties I made a removable cover and sewed really cute pooh blanket binding on it. It is big. THe pillow for itself is 18x18. It seemed to take me forever to finish this. I had to make sure the pooh picture went on the form just so. Then I was all done and put the pillow form in for the hundreth time.....and the back didn't want to close by about a 1/2 inch. Somehow I didn't take into account how fluffy the pillow was. So after wanting to cry I pulled out some stitches and ran a piece of blanket binding down the opening in the back. The binding is so cute. It has pooh and the gang on one side and honey pots of the other! Anyway the bottomless pit of a craft closet now has a bit more space and I am one step closer to being done with my Christmas projects!
