Car Shaped Pillow pattern and Esme's Alien Ears

Esme is 11 months old today! Yesterday when we came up from downstairs we found Esme had pulled a drawer out of her dresser, turned it upside down and climbed on top of it. She was standing there, a full 6 inches taller than usual, just extremely proud of herself. She had pulled some clothing down from the third shelf she usually can't reach. Mark and I both laughed at each other and her saying 'Wow - we're in trouble now!'

Original KnitOwl pattern for a car shaped pillow

I spent a good amount of time yesterday making this pattern for a car shaped pillow. Is it a convertible, a roadster, a race car? It's kind of a 'generic' car all around - and the pattern will take a little more work before I can figure out how to make it available through my shop. For one thing it is HUGE, but it goes together as easily as a three piece strip quilt. I think next time I'll use low quality stuffing though, as the high quality stuff combined with the 100% cotton broadcloth made for some weird results.

Esme has alien ears!

These tiny pigtails lasted for a very short amount of time - but her hair is getting long enough to get in her eyes now. I'll have to figure out something to do with it or end up snipping bangs in another few months.
