Accckkk, cute overload! Those robot pillows made my day. I live in a house where the robots outnumber the humans and animals by several hundred, these would fit in just perfect. Great job.

thank you everyone for your nice comments!

june - I lucked out on the fabric, it was at joann's on one of their halloween racks. its a thin vinyl-ish material that cuts without fraying & is easy to stitch through. well, easy with one or two layers...the couple places where I had to go through 3 layers just about killed my fingers!

Gotta head to my JoAnn's and look for that vinyl-y (new word!) material!
