I made yet another scrappy pillow from Crazy Mom Quilts original idea. The first one I made was for my little cousin, Molly. I made it last December when she turned three. Her sister, Olivia, turned one this month, so I decided to make a similar one for her. Some of the fabrics are different, but I used the same backing fabric and embroidery thread, so if they ever share a room, they will match.
Olivia is too little to really know much about her presents, but Molly grabbed it up and said “My pillow!” So, now there are two. I just love making pillows like this. They’re relatively fast and easy, and the personalization makes them so special. I also love that they help me use up some scraps in the process. I have boys, so they probably won’t be invited to too many girls’ birthday parties, but if/when they are, this will be a go-to gift. I like it much better than going out to buy something plastic, and it’s something that won’t be so easily outgrown as many toys are.
