for quite some time...


A pillow for kindy has been on my to-do list for quite some time. It was originally proposed to help get over a little hump, you know... the kind that pop up from time to time. And so drawings were made and fabrics selected {a combination of reds and pinks to keep us both happy} and they sat in a sweet little pile, for quite some time.

Until yesterday.

Taking inspiration from the pages of one of my favourite books and armed with the trusty notes from my lesson, {thanks t} I made a start. It's not properly quilted as time was of the essence at the end of the day, but I'm happy with the result and more importantly so is my kindy girl!





And the best part is that I know she will treasure it for quite some time...

That looks so lovely. Just like the sort of things that I like to have at home for my girls.
I've spotted your princes and the pea softie. It's so cute. I shall have to make one just to have all my favourite fabrics together.
