Humble but Necessary: Maternity Pillow Cover

Not all sewing projects can be as exciting as making a new dress; yet I imagine I’ll be getting a lot of use out of my latest FO.

Those of you who follow the podcast may remember I mentioned finding a French family company that made maternity and nursing pillows stuffed with 100% natural cork micro-balls, which I find more eco-friendly and healthy than polystyrene; and one of my plans for maternity sewing was to make my own cover for it.


I wasn’t sold on the fabric when I first bought it, but I have to say it really looks good on the bed – Seb and I have always had a thing for blue, and most of our linen is blue.
Here’s a view of the back, with the zipper – and a cat that somehow found her way into the pictures:

As you can see, this pillow proved extremely popular the minute I put it on the bed. Within 30 seconds of discovering the pillow, P’tite Mignonne had worked out perfectly how well suited it is to support your back:

I was thinking only the other day that I hadn’t shared kitty pictures in a while. I certainly wouldn’t have you think that P’tite Mignonne was neglected these days – it really has been quite the opposite.

    Oh, Miss Cutie! So glad to see you… and thank you for sharing the comfort features of this pillow! ;o) The pillow looks wonderful, Isabelle. But how long is that zipper? It looks tremendously looong… LOL… But what a great, different, interesting project for you, and not least very useful soon. :o)I hope to catch up on your latest podcast this weekend, where there's more time to tune in. Happy Days, my friend ((HUGS))

    Hello ma chère Isabelle !
    Si ça se trouve, c'est elle qui va le monopoliser, ton coussin d'allaitement ! Moi, je ne me suis jamais beaucoup servi du mien … pour dormir pendant la grossesse, cela ne me soulageait pas, et pour allaiter, je n'étais pas à l'aise, je préférais bien me caler dans mon fauteuil et me débrouiller sans … Mais après, je l'ai prêté à ma soeur pour sa petite dernière, et il a bien servi !
    Gros bisous !
