My Son Needed a Vintage Sheet Pillow Too

 I mean it's only fair that my son has a cute cuddly vintage sheet pillow too since my daughter has one ... or at least that seemed like a good enough rationale for me to have some sewing fun making one yesterday.

I am super pleased with how his turned out.  The fussy cut center is from an old Bambi pillowcase.  My kids don't have an awareness of Bambi as a character, but they both love deer.  We see deer in our neighbourhood all the time.  Just the other day we saw a mother with a spotted fawn. 
 Here's the pair.
 All the fabric in the pillow is from vintage (1970s era) poly/cotton sheets.  I quilted the pillow with simple wavy lines.  It is 20 inches square.
And of course the deep pocket in the back makes a nice bear bed.

Happy Quilting!

The pillow is so cute - of course ou son should have one too!

My DD is 25yo and still traumatised by seeing the movie "Bambi" (the mother is killed) so I wouldn't worry about your children not knowing the character!

I went to my local "thrift store" today - all the sheets that I liked were $12 plus and I couldn't work out what to buy! SO I bought nothing!

So far I haven't done anything with vintage sheets, since I can't afford to start yet another fabric obsession. These pillows are so cute!!

Those are adorable! I'm doing my daughter's room in a woodland critters theme and bambi would be perfect. Guess I'm off to scour e-bay for vintage sheets.
