The Union Jack pillow


 
The idea came from a post  here earlier this week. Thank you very much France for such a nice idea.

My niece has just turned ten and I wanted to make her something with my hands. Handmade presents are very special, I think...

I had selected fabrics in my stash to make it but after "auditioning" them, I changed two. You can compare with the photo on the previous post ;-)




I picked up a coordinated fabric for the back...

... and  even made a  label.

 

Well, I do hope that she will like her pillow... she is coming over on Saturday ;-)

Don't worry, she doesn't know about my blog so she won't see it before opening the surprise gift.

 This was a very simple and fun project. I am sure that the pillow will find a place in her bedroom.

To finish this post, I want to thank you all for your wonderful response to my previous post. I have read them over and over again.  I feel blessed to belong to such a great blog community  ;-)

Enjoy your weekend,

Until later,

  1. hello David ,
    je suis sure que ce présent très personnel sera apprecié par ta nièce !
    j'ai une fille de 12/13 ans et elle adore ce style aussi ....
    une bien belle réalisation ... qui est sublimée par le message sur l'étiquette !
    bon WE !
