Finished Ladybug Pillow Pet

I finished the ladybug the other day and my daughter couldn't be happier. Thankfully, she is only 4 so she doesn't care if it isn't the "real" thing. Who knows how long that will last?

I attempted to make pattern pieces for the head in photoshop, but it just wasn't working right. So, tomorrow I will be scanning the pieces at Office Max since I don't own a scanner. Lame. But I really want to get that posted for you! It took me awhile to get the shape of the head the way I wanted it. I might as well save you the time and post the pattern. Look for that soon.

These photos are not great as I took them at night. I'll post some better ones later.

Alanna has dragged this thing everywhere since I've finished. Well, let me clarify. She has been dragging it everywhere since I finished the body. But now that the head is done, she couldn't be happier!

I learned a great lesson with this pillow. I will never again assume that I can't make something that is sold in the stores. Even if it isn't exact, I can make it! So, have at her! It's easy!

I have decided to add this to the Bloggers Pillow Party. Why not right? I was making the pillow anyway, so why not enter it?

I've seen a few attempts at pillow pets, but yours is the cutest! I think it's even better than the "real" ones!

Thanks ladies. I need to finish up the bee still. Kind of slacking. But once I do, I will post a pattern piece for the head
