Carrie's clever game

Lately Carrie has been sewing these adorable soft game pillows --- first one for our grandson Quen, now this one for Jayna.

The "window" is clear acetate material, through which the stuffing of plastic pellets and small toys, coins, buttons, etc. can be seen. (I tried to illustrate the shiny light-reflecting parts but not sure it worked.) On the reverse side is a bit of cotton fabric where she wrote a list of items that can be found inside.

Makes a great car-trip game, trying to spy all the hidden items! Jayna will get to try that out this Saturday --- we are heading to San Antonio. Bill will be flying in from Kansas and we'll spend the day there. Then on to visit Quen and his parents in Austin on Sunday. My time in Texas is drawing to an end . . . .


  1. That is a clever idea... great sketch too.

  2. Very cute. Will have to try that for my Great Niece and Nephew. Love your painting. Have a safe trip.

  3. What a cool idea!!! I may have to plagiarize it!

  4. Thanks, everyone!

    LOL --- Carrie admits that she plagiarized the idea herself! Our other daughter-in-law Misty told her about seeing one somewhere and told Carrie because she sews. A similar one is available on Etsy.
