QUILT TURNED FLOOR PILLOW

I was sewing up this little would-be quilt when Sky came home from school yesterday. He and the noise-maker that lives next door, plopped themselves down at the kitchen counter and started inhaling snacks.

I had finished the top and was attaching it to the back. Just simply pillow turning it with one of Grace's old fleece crib blankets. I figured that if she didn't want it, the local children's home where Sarge volunteers would.

And then Sky said (though a mouthful of crackers mind you) "Geeze Mom don't you think that pillow is a little big?!"

Friggin' genius. Runs in the family ya know
 
So now Grace has a a very girly patch-work pillow to park her rump on. 
 
 

Or just haul around the deck.

  

Baby yoga anyone?

I really like a big pillow like that for sitting on the floor or reading in bed.

I love the hair! She is sweet. I love the pillow too. It's so much fun to create for them, isn't it?

These things are so great for little ones--and they love having their own. Good re-use!

What a lovely girly pillow and it looks like the perfect size for your daughter. Love the striped fabric on the back.

Having a pillow that is too big, is like having too many pillows! No such thing! Very neat idea.

I should make some of these to plop on the floor for myself! And I love her little ponytails, so cute!

so cute! My kids loved plopping on the huge pillows I just made. I was thinking I needed to make them some too.
