“Not ANOTHER pillow, Laura! For the love of all that’s holy!”
If it’s any consolation, these are a bit more “advanced,” technically speaking.
These pillows that came with our sofas are just blah. We’ve been updating our color scheme to include, drum roll please, blue. Never thought I’d live to see the day I’d decorate with blue as it’s my least favorite color (reminds me of winter…). But guess what? Blue can also be very SUMMER inspired.
My (almost 11 year old) niece Kalli is a reader. She’s not a reader like I am, where she’ll read a new book every month or so… I mean, a READER. She’ll read, like, 3 books in a week. She’s a beast.
Well, this year for Christmas I wanted to make her something “book-y” so I decided to make her a reading pillow. I wanted it to be small and with a handle so she could carry it around to sleepovers or just in the car. I wanted it to have a pocket so she could actually store the book safely when she’s not reading it, which isn’t very often 🙂
When I began sewing for my Christmas projects (personal and work related) this year, I didn’t intend to do a series on felt. But when I start on something, I kind of get rolling and the creative juices just won’t stop. I can’t help it… that’s just the way I’m wired, I guess.
