Caravan & VW Camper Van Pillow Cushions: Beehind The Seam

I took advantage of the day at home today and did this pillow – with a caravan them.  Guess if I can’t have a caravan (he he Nils) then I’ll make one.

No seriously, I thought it would be cute.  I keep thinking about what pillow cushions I should make.  I will do some buntings too, but still want to focus on pillows first.  While I don’t only want to do nautical theme things like beach huts, crabs, lobsters, starfish, anchors, whales… I want to capture something that includes Norfolk-ish things too – so caravans, VW buses, etc. could be fun too!

It took me a bit longer than I hoped, but that is because I’m doing it at my dining room table, taking things out and in and setting up…  I really need to get my sewing area set up in the guest room as I think I could turn them out faster with things properly set up.  The off white fabric I used it a little thin too, so I think I’ll need to double it up until I get to Norwich for some better fabric.  And I need to find a place that carries the filler for the pillows.

Oh and I just have to add that it is funny that as I sewed it, the machine was talking to me – just like my breast pump used to do!

Later this afternoon, I decided to see if I could create a VW Camper Van Pillow Cushion.  I ran out of the green color thread, so I had to use pink.  It definitely doesn’t pop out as much, but it is what it is until I get a bit more spools of thread.  I think it’s cute – not sure if I want to add the VW logo in a circle in the middle or not.  I don’t think technically it’s allowed but perhaps a silver button – but could be fun or to find Silver VW Button.

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
