One of our dear friends had a birthday this week and the girls really wanted to make something special for her. Cassidy usually does this on her own, with out much help from me but Haydn still needs guidance. She gets big ideas and has a hard time with the follow through. So we worked together.
The process was smooth, cut out a circle and piece the face together with felt. Then, at the end, she thought it looked more like a dog. She got super bummed about it but still gave it to her friend. Luckily it was well received, but I didn't doubt it for a second!
One on one time with her like that is special. Time that often doesn't happen because her sisters are always around. It brings out a different light in my girls. Maybe its that I am more relaxed or that they feel completely heard with out two other voices to compete with but its always enjoyable. I find that we come out of it stronger, more connected too.
These face pillows are so cute! I kept thinking about all the different ones we could do. (maybe for the shop?) Sort of reminds me of this face pillow by Land of Nod. And on your bed? One of the kids in my sewing class was saying you could make a body blanket and put the face pillow at the top. Genius. These kids are sewing inspirations for sure.
