Book Pocket Pillow

 I made this book pocket pillow for my niece. I got the tutorial from Melissa Mortenson at The Polka Dot Chair blog. She makes a lot of beautiful sewing patterns.

The polar bear is a Follow the White Bunny embroidery pattern by Nicole Vos van Avezathe. Here is her Etsy Shop. She is ridiculously talented.

I added some top stitching on the back pieces.

The pattern said to put the handle three inches from the outside edges
 but I think it was supposed to be three inches from the center. 

I added top stitching on the front pocket as well.

The pillow is 18" and the pattern said to cut the fabric at 18" as well, so I was a little nervous that it would be too small after adding a seam allowance. But I followed the instructions and it turned out perfectly. I love it.
