The pillow to end all pillows. I think this thing might be the answer to everything... plus it has kitty's, nuff said!
Before I go into a little more detail about the project though I just wanted to address the fact that there has been very little (no) garment sewing going on at all, and the fact you will notice it is mostly baby sewing/DIY at the moment. Honestly, the time it takes to make a garment, which will only fit me for the next few months, is not overly inspiring me at the moment. I don't think I can cope with drafting, making a toile, sewing up a final version etc at the moment i'm just too tired and there aren't enough hours in the day. Plus getting down onto the floor to cut out lots of pattern pieces just isn't the easiest of things right now! So apologies, but this won't be the end of the garment sewing, I just need to get this little man outta here first. There are a few sewing patterns I really have my eye on at the moment, and I mean, By Hand London made a bloody playsuit pattern! I have only been after one of these forever!

I made it in cottons so it is easy to sponge clean as it would be a mare to clean this any other way. It should also make it comfy enough for us both and not irritate any of our delicate skin. I love this kitty fabric too, its from t
