Hello (and goodbye!) Kitty

I’ve been worrying about making my little niece’s Christmas present since November. I was going to make her some jammies, tried a couple patterns and wasn’t happy with any of them.

She’s in love with Hello Kitty. Maybe love is the wrong word. I’d go with obsessed. Little K has some purple Hello Kitty jammies and poor E was beside herself when she had to give them back after Thanksgiving.

After racking my brain, working myself up and then changing my mind, I asked her mommy if she thought a pillow would be ok. She said sure and then said a blanky might be nice too. So I worked up the courage and cut into the pretty (and pricey…and hard to find!) fabric.

And here’s the finished product.

First time I’ve used satin binding, and the first time I added felt embellishments. All in all I’m pretty darn happy with it. Now I’m going to try some of these handmade Christmas cards. Wish me luck!
