Spoonflower Fabric of the Week Critter Pillow Slip Cut & SewContest

Critter pillow slip cut & sew Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: February 27, 2013

For this week's contest we asked each designer to create a cut & sew pattern for a slip to fit a warmable animal-themed pillow -- <a href="">a pillow</a> that can be filled with feed corn, flax seed or something similar and then warmed in a microwave to create a soft, snuggly friend for cold winter nights. The entries were almost too cute to vote. The winner, however, was a little dachshund named Sally created by Australian designer Laura Wright. Congratulations to Laura and the rest of the top ten!
