Bunnies Need Pillows Too

My daughter has been climbing on top of our bed, sinking back into our pillows and staying there. Sometimes for minutes at a time. This is truly a feat of mammoth proportions when you're talking about a toddler. She acted like she wanted her own pillow. So, I purchased a super soft travel sized pillow, then I dug out some thrifted supplies. Using 20 cents worth of $1 thrifted fabric and 25 cent thrifted iron on velcro, I got to work.
After measuring the pillow, I cut the fabric to size with a 1/2 inch seam allowance, plus 3/4 of an inch in the length for the no-sew velcro. 20 minutes later... Bunny got to try out a pillow.

Then another bunny tried out the pillow. She now carries it everywhere. For less than 50 cents, I made a pillowcase that matches Charlotte's bedding. And her size :)

Isn't it fun to do special things for others! I have always loved when my little ones realize everyone else has a pillow:-) It is such a treat for them to receive one of their own!

Love the bow in her hair too!

Very sorry, but someone tagged me and I had to pass it on. See my blog for more info, or just ignore this :)

Look at those blue eyes- she is SO CUTE Diane!

How can someone as crafty as yourself, with such an adorable little girl, NOT scrapbook? Aren't you a little tempted?

Oh how I long for the day when Clover will lay her head on a pillow for MINUTES at a time! I find it exciting when she just leans back and sits still for 15 seconds but minutes you say... something to look forward too.

Your little girl is such a doll Diane, great job on the pillow :)
