The Panther Pillow

My grandson, Jacob, is here for a few days. We had fun yesterday making this pillow for Jacob as his favorite football team is the Carolina Panthers.

We used white fleece for the pillow body and woolfelt and the new Xotic bamboo felt to make the letters and the panther. This was Jacob's idea so he was the design engineer and I was the "worker bee". :-)
Please note.....we made this pillow for Jacob, not for sale and no pattern to share. We went to the Carolina Panthers website to get the inspiration for the design which is the copyrighted symbol for the Panthers. So, I explained to Jacob that while we could make a pillow for him, one can't make things to sell that use a national team's logo. I've read my copyright info and don't think we have a problem here. Jacob is happy to be a fan of the Carolina Panthers and hopes they wouldn't be angry because we used their logo to make him a pillow. I'm thinking the Carolina Panthers would be happy to have a fan in Minnesota, Land of the Vikings. :-)

Jacob...you had a great design in mind here and Grandma Skeeter did a good job of making it come to life for you. I'm sure you will enjoy this pillow for a long time to come. I'm surprised you are a Panther fan since you don't live anywhere near there...and since there are pro football teams nearer to your home!
