Future Hall of Famer?? I Don't think So!

We can pretend though. We all know that The BF is a die hard Dallas Cowboys fan. If you didn't know that well, yeah....

He named our bird (Who sadly past away last week after 4 yrs) Romo. After Tony Romo of course.

He named our newest Kitten Emmitt. After Emmitt Smith, who's now in the Hall of Fame. It was like, The BF's tribute to Emmitt Smith.

Being the Cowboys fan that he is, me I'm a Seahawks fan. It only seem appropriate that Emmitt have his own Cowboys Pillow.

So being the creative crafter that I am, I decided to make Emmitt the pillow he so deserves. This literally took me maybe 5 minutes to make. It was my first pillow. Can someone tell me how to cleanly sew the pillow closed after you stuff it. I ran it through the sewing machine as best I could, and yeah up close it doesn't look so pretty.

The results, a super happy Emmitt, who loves his new pillow and a super jealous Chloe who needs one of her own. Not a Cowboys one, but something pink and furry, because she is a princess.






I know the pillow is ginormous. He's a really long kitten so it's actually going to be perfect once he gets bigger.

He loves it so much. He was laying in front of the fireplace on it for hours last night. My cute little purring boy!

I used to make my puppy beds! He ran away while a friend watched him on vacation.

I hand sew my pillows and such closed, never had luck with the machine closing.

That is one spoiled cat...maybe that is why my cats are so pissed off, they were that spoiled before I had kids, too.

He may be spoiled but he is adorable. The pillow looks very comfy.

I hand-sew pillows closed too!

That's very cute! The cat looks pissed in that last shot. :)

The way that I get it to look finished is I use a curved upolstery needle and sew it on the inside of the seam so then there is no line of stitching. It will all be on the inside!
