I love to have fun with paper, food, paint, music and events and just being creative in all of it. However, I don't feel the need to be a perfectionist nor a professional in any of my creations. I wish I could have a blog JUST about the art of cooking, photography, sewing, art, mothering, jewelry making, card making, dancing, gardening, deep spiritual thoughts, decorating, poetry, party planning, baking.... and the list goes on but I can't. I don't think I was created with the ability to focus on one task. I like all of these hobbies layed out before me and the freedom to pick whatever I choose depending on the mood or time I have.

Monster Pillow From a Baby Blanket

Here's a creative way to preserve your baby items by repurposing your baby blanket into a pillow.

I turned one of my boy's baby blanket into a keepsake pillow. If you're looking for my ideas to preserve your baby items here's a great article: 6 Creative Ways to Preserve Baby Items.
We have tons of blankets from when they were little and I was trying to figure out how to put them to good use. Especially since some of them have some sentimental value. Since my son has nose bleeds I decided the best thing to do was make it into a pillow case.
He loves collecting things so we put a pocket in it. The mouth is a pocket. He absolutely loves it. For the first 2 months he want it with him every where now it just stays on his bed.
 How to:
I just folded the baby blanket in half and sewed around 2 sides of the blanket for a pillow case but for a pillow sew all three sides.
I used sturdy fabric glue to glue on the eyes, mouth and teeth. The mouth is actually a pocket, at my sons request.
I sewed on the red hair. You can sew the whole pillow instead of gluing it. But I had a long list of stocking stuffer gifts to make for my family so I glued as much as I could. It took me about 20 minutes to make this.


  1. Thats cute,Thanks for the good idea.

  2. I'm Sara Frédéric from Switzerland I want to let the whole world know how Dr Great has restored my broken relationship with Wayne. We have been together for 2 1/2 years and he told me that he doesn’t love me like he used to. Things have not been good for about 4 months and he ended this about 2 weeks ago. I was miserable and just don’t want to go on anymore. I did text him right after this but he didn’t even respond to me. One day I was searching for something on the Internet when I saw a post of a love spell caster called Dr Great and how he helped a lady to get back her Ex, I was so desperate to get mine back I messaged him and explained my situation to him and he instructed me to do somethings which I did and 24 hours later my boyfriend Wayne came back home kneeling and begging for my forgiveness and I forgave him and our relationship was back to normal again if your Ex broke up with you or you have any problem then you problem has come to an end because God is using Dr Great to solve all our problems and put a smile on our faces if you need his urgent help email him at infinitylovespell@gmail.com
