My grandson's all time favorite blanket is this one and he's been complaining that it's too small! So I asked him if he wanted Meme to do something with it. Michael's response, "No! It's OK Meme." I think he just didn't want it out of his sight...lol. So last time I was there I asked my daughter if he had been using it and she said no. I told her to bring it to me and I would make it into a car pillow for him. So here goes...
Here I am cutting out the car...I'm so nervous!
I didn't get a picture of it, but I used a Lightning McQueen sheet for the back. With right sides facing each other sew around the edge leaving a 4 inch opening.
Then I zig zagged around it too...just to make sure!
Trimmed it with pinking shears.
Ready to turn right side out!
And then stuff!
All done! A little funky shaped but I don't think he'll mind!
I made a second pillow out of the remaining blanket...waste not, want not!!
