Dr. Seuss Birthday Pillow

I promised you more first birthday pillows would be created this year! This one is a Dr. Seuss pillow!

This is for a little dude who turned ONE last weekend! Its been the fastest year I have ever known, remembering the day he was born quite well. I remember visiting his parents in hospital later that night, their room was sweltering hot and the Mama was glowing and his Dad was bursting with pride. He was so excited, telling us all about his little boy as though he had known him his whole life... 

This birthday cushion was hand embroidered with his nickname, something that is just for him. I loved the Dr. Seuss fabric when I saw it at the Sew Pretty store and knew I had to use it on his pillow! 

Pillows are so easy to create and so satisfying, if you want to make a personalised gift for someone I can definitely recommend a special cushion, especially for a child! 

Do you have any other special gift ideas you regularly use? Leave a comment and let me know!



  1. I can verify that all three family members were stoked on this cushion. Very 'Squishy'. Love your accurate embroidering! Mine would be all over the place.

  2. that fabric is really cute :) - Hi, I'm Amy I found you through My creative Space :)

  3. Coolest DrSuess pillow ever. The CAT even liked it enough to put her hair all over it grRRRR! I've got a bit of cleaning to do.

    1. Oh no! I didn't put a zip in it! You're going to have to wash the whole thing! Eep!


  4. I think I was so excited to sew something, and buy fabric for a purpose, that I turned making a simple pillow cover into a major project memory foam pillow


Wowee! Thanks for leaving a comment :)
