Thomas Inspired

Seems like this week is centered on the kids. Heck, who am I kidding, every week revolves around them. Last week, Thomas had me make clothes for Monkey. He was convinced that Monkey’s lack of clothing was an issue and he meticulously chose fabric and oversaw the sewing, adding important things such as tail holes and selecting the perfect snaps. Upon its completion, Thomas immediately dubbed them Monkey’s pajamas and has dressed him in the every night since.

Today? Thomas came to me and said, “Mommy, I have a problem.”

Whatever could it be?

“Well, when I tuck Monkey in at night, he’s not big enough to reach my pillow, you know, because he likes to be under the covers?”

…and?

“Well, I think he needs a pillow… I know the PERFECT fabric! Oooh! I’ll go get my scissors!!”

And off he went and brought with him his own pillow to size up how big to make Monkey’s pillow, respectively of course.

Here’s what we came up with:

He even helped stuff it and blind stitch it shut. Not too bad for a 6 yr old, huh?
