Turtle Pillow

It was the worst ever spot prize, that fuzzy barbie-pink heart shaped pillow with Betty Boop in all her busty glory embroidered on the front.  I almost declined it right then and there, but Milo took a fancy to it and hugged it to his chest protectively.   It became the pillow that cradled his head every night....his "stinky" pillow (he misunderstood when I told him it was "skanky," instead waving his hand in front of his wrinkled nose and pronouncing it "tinky").

A week ago we decided to give the pillow a new lease on life, reusing just the stuffing to fill the new turtle pillow.  I now have a new appreciation for those hand-sewn honey-comb quilts our great grandmothers used to make!  Not that I hand-sewed this one, but the piecing was finicky enough even with a machine.  Still well worth it.  Milo loves it at least as much as Betty Boop....which is saying something.
