Little boys

We have 2 parties coming up for little boys turning 4.

Inspired by a cushion in this post I made these:

 

  

Mostly using bits from the scrap box.

It's nice to find some time for 'personal' stitching.

Have a stitching weekend.

Lovely, just lovely.

I make pillows a lot as gifts for the kids. Roan groaned the other day and asked if we couldn't just buy something.

I like using fabric that has numbers so you can pop in the age.
