Robot Pocket Pillow

I made some stuff for my nephew who is becoming a brother for the first time this week.  I love how the pocket pillow turned out!  I found the robot fabric at WM and I thought it was just perfect for my projects. Sometimes you can find the cutest fabric at WM.   I made a pillowcase, pocket pillow and a fleece tied blanket.

The Pocket Pillow

I printed the big robot from my clipart onto iron on printable transfers and ironed it on. I made the pocket first and added all the embellishments then I just top stitched it with a zigzag stich onto the pillow.

The Blanket

Well the fleece for the blanket anyway I still have to tie it.  I think I’ll go do that right now while the baby is napping. Have a great day!

Just popped over from Quiltstory. Your pocket pillow is fabulous! What a great idea! I think I need to whip a couple of those up for gifts! That fabric is darling! You are right, sometimes Walmart does have really cute fabric for fun projects like this. Hope ours has that Robot fabric. I haven't seen it yet.

I love the robots! Walmart does have some of the cutest fabrics. Have you seen the PIRATE patterns? I was there today and it was screaming at me to make one of these pillows with a pirate theme!

I'm linking this up as one of my favorite finds of the week!
