Comfort Pillow

Here's a quick little project I put together to comfort our daughter after surgery. Took a favorite sweater of hers that was too small, sewed the sleeves shut at the shoulders and across the neckline. Then added a velcro closure to the bottom and slipped in a pillow form. Voila`! Start to finish, this project took about 30 minutes and she was delighted to have a second life for her teacup sweater!

Tuffimom's Quilts--My First Blog Experience

Welcome to Tuffimom's Quilts!
Been quilting for almost 16 years--almost as long as we've been married! Our first Christmas, my sweet DH bought me a quilt class and it's been a wonderful journey, both the marriage and the quilting!
This January, an inventory was taken of how many UFO's were lurking in my sewing room. The number overwhelmed me--just shy of 30!! Hoping this blog will provide me with plenty of witnesses to make sure I finish. The plan is that at the end of the year, there will be more completed projects than WIPs.
Thanks for reading my first post and I look forward to your comments!
