Celebrate Seuss! Pillows x 2

These 2 pillow are for my 2 boys. The older one (Asher) is a big fan of Dr. Seuss and really excited when I got the fabrics for these. It was his idea to make pillows out of the fabrics. I think he did an excellent job making that decision and I had blast making his vision come true :).

These 2 pillows are designed the same, but they vary by the fabric cut.  I made sure that each pillow gets a good number of characters on them.

The pillow tops are pieced together and then quilted to create an extra comfy feel. It also created a sturdier pillows that hold its shape very well. As you can see I love to quilt and I tend to quilt all my pillow tops as well :).

For the back of the pillow I repeated the colors from the pillow top but cut it larger. One of the pillow I used off white and green solids and the other orange and blue solids.

Both the pillows turned out beautifully and they add a very fun touch to the boys' room.

Saw you on the hodgepodge linky party. LOVE the pillows! I am thinking something like that would be a nice donation/gift to a school library or classroom for their reading corners. :)
