Ukulele Pillow

I got another coat of primer on the plank ceiling this morning.  And in the cracks.  Boooo.  I still haven't decided on the final coat.  I have a can of custom white that's a close match to our trim color, but it's satin finish.  No flat or eggshell other than cocaine white.  Which means a run to Home Depot.  I'm too lazy for that, so odds are, it'll get the satin finish.  The most exciting part is, I got the first coat of paint on the walls!  Fresh paint is miraculous.  Although, I remember now how much I hate rolling.  Cutting in is fine.  I actually kinda like it.  Rolling, not so much.  

Anyway, while I wait for the wall paint to dry, I figure I'd share one of my homemade Christmas gifts.
Here ya go....

My brother-in-law had a ukulele on his Christmas wish list this year.  This isn't quite what he had in mind, but I had it on one of my Pinterest boards and thought it would be fun.

My sewing projects never don't always go as planned, but this time I only needed the seam ripper once.  Although, I did have a tangled up bobbin, two broken needles, and I ran out of white thread mid-string.  'Tis the story of my sewing life.

You can get the printable pattern here.

And don't worry, he got a real ukulele from my parents Santa.
He can strum, "Over The Rainbow", to his heart's content.


  1. I love that uke- That is just darling and you did a great job on it. Let me know how you like the eggshell on the ceiling- xo Diana

  2. That is super cute. My sewing projects go the same way. Ugh.

  3. I am in love with this pillow, and I know some musician friends who would probably love it as well, so here I go a-pinning!

  4. Mindy, that's so super cute! My daughter would love one of these so if you feel like making another one...add it to your etsy shop and I'll buy it from you ;0)

  5. This seriously had to be one of the cutest things I have ever seen. This would be a great piece for a bedroom as a decorative piece. Love love!

  6. Love it! That is such a great gift.
