Today I Finished Three Monster Pillows.

I usually try to send each of my siblings and their offspring a little gift for their birthdays.  I totally dropped the ball with three of my nephews' birthdays (ranging from September to December).  I never got them anything and didn't even know what to send until three weeks ago, when I saw some ugly doll pillows in a catalog.  I thought, "I can make that!"  And I did.  So, if my sister and sister-in-law happen to read this post, Bear and Baby D will each be receiving one of these belated birthday gifts in the mail soon.  :)

Those are so cute! Grayson is having a monster party next week, if I was at all good at sewing I'd try and do these for a party favor. I love all the fun things you make!

How Cute those are!!!

I do the same thing. If I see something I usually try to make it myself. Saves a ton of money.
