Tidy Up Tuesday - Put the "L" in Pillow

Welcome to another edition of Tidy Up Tuesday!!  I have been working on a family of gifts.  That brings me to the final family member.

You might recall seeing THIS scrappy piece a couple of weeks ago:

The design was somewhat less than successful, but with some outline quilting (done in black thread) it makes a fun I Spy:

I searched the studio and came up with this shirt from the recently closed J. Crew brand...

... That a used for one of the two masks that I've made thus far:

This time, I used the J Crew shirt for the backing of the pillow I'm working on for a young friend:

I used the front of the shirt to include the pocket...

Then, created a secret pocket, as well:

Here is the completed pillow...

... And a close-up of Put the "L" in Pillow:

I think my recipient will be thrilled!

Until next time...
Go SEW!!!


  1. Cute pillow. When I used shirts for the grandson's picnic quilts, I didn't include pockets, but did include a piece with the label.

  2. Great job on the pillow. It's "L"ovely! ;^)

  3. Wow! You really know how to use a shirt, don't you? Were there any scraps left at all? I love everything you made with it, especially those pockets.

  4. That turned into a very cute pillow, Joy! I love the idea of using a shirt for the back of it, and including the pocket, too!

  5. Sew clever!!! The recepient should be super happy with it. It's adorable. I love the way you put the outline around the L. Great job. Love the designer mask too!

  6. This is so fun! I love the secret pocket :)

  7. So clever! Very repurposeful! :)

  8. I love it!!! and love that you made a plaid mask!!!
