This is what I spent a few weeks out of my life creating right before Christmas time. Dog Bone Pillows! These little suckers are positively amazing I tell you. They are perfect for tucking behind your neck, or on your shoulder to rest your head more comfortably when watching tv, or reading a book, or as a passenger in a car or bus or train or plane.
I actually inherited my mom’s Dog Bone Pillow and it kept getting swiped by the kids, so this year, I cut a pattern from it and went a little nuts.
Needless to say, all the adults in the family got one for Christmas. Some of the inlaws weren’t even sure what they were. But oh, my…we showed them. Jacob propped his up against the side of the rocking chair and rested his head on it. He woke up an hour later.
I didn’t actually count how many I needed when I started sewing. I just cut out pillows in lots of different fabrics. So in the end, I had about 20 or so left. I suppose they’ll do nicely in the Etsy Shop. Especially if people have ever used one before. It only takes one happy little experience with these magical thingys. Trust me.
They’ll be hooked and then it will be DOG BONES FOR EVERYONE!!
She wasn’t a bit impressed.
