Yesterday, I made some pillows.
The pillows on the couch had become grungy and I had some time yesterday, so I did some patchwork pillows with the fabric Martha sent me.
Magoo asked if I could make him a pillow too. I was going to put this project off for a few days, but since he was a big sickie today - how could I say no? So I went downstairs to my fabric stash to see what would look good for a little boy pillow.
I had bought a fuzzy purple top from the Salvation Army a while ago - just for the fabric. I figured it was perfect for a puppet or something like that. Today when I saw it, I knew I had to make a monster pillow.
I got started on the body and found some stuff for horns. But the face just wasn't coming together for me.
Yesterday I saw a post of a woman who made stuffed monsters based on kids' art, so I thought I'd let Magoo design the face.
I drew the body out. He did the eyes and mouth.
So that's what I did.
I didn't have enough orange felt to do a mouth as big as the one he drew - but I figured this was close enough.
So now he's resting with his new pillow and I hope it scares all the oogy sickness away.
