The King of Pillows

I have today and tomorrow off work, so this morning, Lil' Kay and I met my mom to choose fabric for Sally's baby quilt. While Mom and I were choosing fabrics (and let me tell you, that is a time-consuming task) Lil' Kay found a dinosaur fabric panel that he absolutely loved! Now, fabric panels are typically used to make a wall hanging or small blanket, but we decided to turn this one into a giant body pillow!

I did the cutting and sewing and then turned Lil' Kay loose with a bag of polyfil! He did a fabulous job of stuffing his pillow, but it took a lot of "fluffy" to fill it! He kept telling me, "It's almost done!" and I kept say, "No, it's not!" He was quite the trooper. I really expected him to get bored when it didn't fill up as quickly as he wanted, but he just kept stuffing.

Lots of "fluffy" later, Lil' Kay had a huge body pillow covered in his favorite dinosaurs. Lately, he's been trying to determine the "king" of everything -- king of dinosaurs, king of animals, king of candy (which, by the way, is chocolate). He was very quick to dub this project the King of Pillows!
