I needed to make demonstration samples last week for my Add Zip to Your Pillow Class and Roan needed a birthday gift for a classmate. Two birds, one stone…
For Sofia’s new pink bedroom. Little girls seem to still appreciate the handmade. Little boys, not so much.
Last time I tried to make a pillow for a boy gift Roan’s response was, “Oh, a pillow?! Can’t we just buy a toy?!” Add a whining tone to that.
Skip the gift wrap, that’s what all those selvedges are saved for.
And that two bird thing? Roan needed a new pillow cover and I had just a bit of this Alexander Henry fabric left from the back of his quilt. Still reminds me of the A-ha video.
My couch is still in need and I’m waiting patiently for this fabric to arrive.
In the meantime the floor was washed and this was basted.
Now, off I go, I have a date with a quilt and I’m happy to report the sun is shining in Seattle.
p.s. In light of the past few days, I found this video on Ted is worth a watch.
