Big Cushion ~ sweet dreams and a tooth fairy pocket

May 3, 2012

My eldest Little Person just had a birthday and she had been asking for one of my tooth fairy cushions so thought I’d go one step further and make her this pillow.

 I used an old bedsheet of hers from her cot days for the front. I’ve included a tooth fairy pocket and a ‘sweet dreams’ pocket with embroidered words on them. She sometimes has bad dreams and likes to ‘put her bad dreams into a box’ which she keeps on her bed.With this ‘sweet dreams’ pocket, she can hide the nightmares away into something less bulky in her bed.



Other than the fabric I used for the back, everything else is from leftover scraps from my fabric stash. The moon and stars are from an old skirt of mine that I’ve recently cut up ~ it was made from a metallic thread, but no longer fits me (it used to look lovely in the days before the Little People and lots of cakes changed my body shape 😀

I’ve appliquéd her name across the top in a variety of pretty fabrics – some of which hold special meanings for us. She’s just heading out of the pink, pink, pink stage (YAY!), so thought a combination of reds and blues would do nicely, and on the back I used a lovely fabric I picked up from Chawla’s which she really liked.

    I recognise that flowery fabric on the back. I have just used some in the latest little house I have been making but in the blue/lilac colour way. No idea what or where it is from, just liked it!

    Very gorgeous cushion. Imogen is lucky to have you to make these special things for her, that are unavailable in shops!
