Her birthday party was an explosion of pink (including everyone's outfits, the food, the decorations, the presents - everything! There are more excitingly pink details here...) but to make the princess happy with pink I had the perfect idea! I had just gotten some Princess and the Pea fabric (by Heather Ross) and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to use some of it (fussy cut of course). I used this tutorial and made her a pretty pretty princess pillowcase for her big girl bed!
I couldn't find a bag big enough to fit the pillowcase with a pillow in it - so needless to say she had NO idea what it was when she opened it and tossed it aside. Good thing we had bought her Pinkalicious as well! She did take a minute to look through that. :) Later we put a pillow in and showed her what it was - then we got a good reaction!
I think she liked it!!
Playing with it is a good sign!
All in all I think it was a pretty good gift - and I sure enjoyed making it (I kept talking about using all that pink fabric for something!)
This week is back to the regularly scheduled programming - I HAVE GOT to finish that quilt! I am going to miss my New Years Resolution in the first month! :)
