The Princess Pillow!

i hope you're enjoying this friday...
i am,
i've had a quiet morning just mucking around at home
making cushions.

i had fun with this series
that vanessa kindly gave me fabric for.
i've matched her bright fat quarters
with various spots and dots
that i've had in my stash box!

this one was just made for princesses....

this is 'princess pencil'!
she came with my 'pink parcel'..from melody.

princess pencil is the ideal princess for a school cushion..hehe!

the princess pillow poses with princess pencil on the pink blanket!

princess pencil poses with pink polka dots on the pink blanket..haha!

they are about to be deposed by the 'bright 'n' stripey' twins...

vanessa from "flower photography" sent all of this amazingly vibrant fabric...
pop in and say 'hello' this afternoon...
she's producing some great photography,
much better than these pics!

they were fun to make...
do you like making stuff for kids?

cushion no's 22, 21 and 20 are done!
{19 to go for the nanango prep and kinder kids}

have a great weekend and i'll see you tomorrow
{God willing}
to share a bit of gratitude with maxabella...
now i'd better go and find a link for 'flower photography'!

p.s...eight cushion covers and three georgeous packs of facewashers and handtowels done up with pretty soaps {made by my lovely friend marie} will be posted this afternoon to jenny at theodore!


  1. I could make some for you, but suck at zippers and have never done buttons before...

  2. Great Fabrics...I've started Today...
    Have a Good Weekend..

  3. Such beautiful bright and happy cushions. Very nice work. :)

  4. Wow, such lovely fabrics! My Miss4yo thinks that the princess pillow is the best ;)

  5. Lovely Carol I knew they would be!!!

  6. Visiting your blog and seeing those lovely prints always cheer us up Carol! Have a good weekend!

  7. Gorgeous cushions, I love the first best, those fun colours and patterns are wonderful. You know I love sewing for children, but it's mostly clothing!

    Happy weekend x

  8. What gorgeous bright colours! They look great! X

  9. Such beautiful fabrics! I'm really enjoying seeing all these cushions, they're gorgeous x

  10. Wow! Now thats my kind of pillow.

  11. Hi Carol, Your cushions are beautiful in every way! They all take my breath away! I love how you match the various patterned fabrics together. Wishing you a sensational weekend! Blessings, Kerrie. xOx

  12. You are the best at putting together the colors and patterns that make something beautiful! Great job! Some little Princess is going to love those. Blesings!

  13. LOVE those colors! You put together the greatest combination of fabrics every time!! Very fun.

  14. Those twin pink and green cushions are lovely - I always put pink and green together - it never fails to work. If that's what you accomplish when you're just 'mucking around', what will you do when you really get serious??

  15. Those bright princess cushions are great, any girls would love them! You're doing such a great job with your cushion projects. Keep it up!

  16. Hello Carol! So wonderful and happy fabrics and you have made so lovely pillow for princesses! I love your sweet roses, too!
