Books & Crafts #2: The Nephew Pillow

Welcome to Books & Crafts, a craft circle composed of book bloggers, a sporadic meme where we share our other creative pursuits aside from reading and blogging. Everyone is welcome to join, just add your tag/label links below and you’re good to go!

So this was the third or fourth pillow I made as I started learning how to sew. My mom wanted me to sew a pillow for my only nephew, Derek. He will be 2 years old this month. I went with the monkey theme because my bother calls him monkey. It’s adorable. Enjoy the cuteness below!


He looks just like my brother. My mom use to say my brother Shane looked like an angel when he was born, and I have to admit, I see it in Derek too. My other brother was compared to a monkey, and I was likened to an insect. Yeah. We all know who my mom’s favorite is. LOL. Just kidding.

So I got sick again. *sighs* Half the office was sick with the flu so it was inevitable. Sucks! So I don’t know when I will be posting again. But I did go to the Huntington Library on Saturday like I said I would and it was amazing and beautiful. I’m happy I will have those memories with me as I’m dying from a sore throat this next week or two! lol

    Oh how adorable and sweet! Your pillow is amazing too, glad he loves it and it must be nice seeing how much he is snuggling with it. 😉

    Cute print!
    I hope you start feeling better soon. Being sick sucks balls. 🙁 Rest up and take care of yourself 😉 We will still be here when you get back.

    It looks like you made just the right pillow for him. It sucks to have the flu. I wish you get better soon.

      I asked my mom which insect but she can’t think of a specific one. I think it’s enough that I look like an insect in general.

    Aww that pillow looks so cute and it seems like your nephew is definitely making good use of it! I know I wouldn’t mind having a pillow like that myself as well 😀

    That pillow is adorable as well as the angel on it!! Monkeys are my second fav animal to penguins and they are just too cute. I don’t think I was ever compared to an animal unless you count my Granddad that called all the grandkids opossum.
