I think I need to take a moment and count how many letter pillows I have made thus far. I have not quite made it through the alphabet yet, but I have certainly made way more than twice the number of letters in the alphabet.
Which letter do you think would be the most popular? I found that when I started the letters that sold the most often were the ones I had already made since the customer could see what they would be getting.
One of my favorite letter projects was for someone who want a little something special added to the letter, as you can see in this blog post.

Grandma was extremely good to my older daughter and purchased an American Girl doll for her as soon as she was capable of reading the books that go along with them. Once the doll entered the house I started thinking about making things for the doll to wear. I did find a couple patterns on the internet, but did not have much luck at first finding too many patterns.
Now I have decided to work on making some patterns and clothing for 18 inch dolls myself. Knowing that I am gauge challenged, I have been thinking carefully about how I will design patterns that need to be a specific size in order to fit the dolls. I am hoping that the patte... » Read More
