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.
