DIY Cookie Monster Pillow

Cookie Monster Pillow

March 23, 2011 Sarah Coggins

The first friend in Dylan’s playgroup celebrated his 2nd birthday last week.  I’m still in shock.  It seems like it wasn’t that long ago all of us mommies were pregnant (well, the first time around – some just were/are now – no, not me!). The theme for his party was Cookie Monster and he definitely has a love for the blue, furry friend.  Normally I steer clear of the party theme for the gift, but this time … well, I had a crazy idea at the last minute and went for it.

DIY Cookie Monster Pillow: Sketch

On a Tuesday morning (2 weeks ago to be exact) with the party on the following Saturday, Dylan & I headed to the fabric store for supplies. I didn’t even have a pattern. Just an idea in my head and a simple sketch in my sketchbook. Yes, I lost my mind. But the result was totally cute …

The felt cookie comes out of his hand for play or to “feed” Cookie Monster.

Dylan (who hardly has any interest in Sesame Street) found the entire thing delightful and even tried to eat the cookie!  I took this as a sign that it was a good gift and, from what I’ve heard, the birthday boy is loving it.  Yay!

Supplies: flannel, felt, Wonder Under, thread, pillow, batting
