baby pillow

2.23.2011


Here's the little something extra that I made to go with the log cabin baby quilt


I had been dreaming up this pillow long before I started making it. 


I love adding something personal to a project when I can.  Embroidering the sweet babe's name on the pillow seemed fitting. 


Hope you like it Amelia.  ♥

  5. Ummm...Anna...you put the wrong name on that pillow. My name is Rachel. R-A-C-H-E-L.

    Haha just kidding. It's beautiful and sweet Amelia (and her mom) will love it.

  8. Ahhh, so cute, Anna!! I am seeing that kind of binding on some pillows on different blogs. Do you just make the pillow and then bind it like you would a quilt? Is really cute and adds to the pillow.

    I know what you mean about personalising it - I made a personalised quilt for my new niece this Christmas, you can see it at http://me35.wordpress.com/2010/12/02/the-official-last-sewn-item/

    ( shhh- I like yours MUCH better though !! )

  16. So who's a clever girl then, and yes with a piece of work or creation a definite personalisation does put the finishing touches.
