Little Owl Reading Pillow and Bib

Little Owl Quilt, Pillow, Bib

After I finished my Little Owl Quilt, I had quite a few scraps leftover and wanted to use them in some way.  I had an 18″ x 18″ pillow form laying around and thought a reading pillow would be nice.  There’s a bunch of them on Etsy.  I just pieced and quilted a pocket front in the same width as the pillow and sewed it on the front of a piece of fabric the same size as the pillow. I think it’s a fun pillow, especially to take with you somewhere and have your child be able to snuggle and have his books along.

I love that bias binding!

For the baby bib, I used April Rosenthal’s Charm Bib pattern. I altered a few things with it, though.  I added a layer of batting to it and quilted it in the same manner as the quilt. I used a little piece of quilting fleece for the back.  I also did a binding on it just like I do on my quilts, with an invisible stitch on the front made my quilting in the ditch. I used bias binding again, like on the baby quilt.

The bias binding on the bib was a little tricky and required good “pinning” and a slow needle. This is how I attached the binding to the bib.  Thank goodness for Wonder Clips!  That would have been harder to do with pins.

These were so fun to make.  Can’t wait to give this cute set to the expecting mother!

Thanks for popping in!
