|Bear's Pillow Front|
Mothers of the world, do yourself a favor: make a floor pillow for each of your children.
|Bear's Pillow Back|
I love these magic cushions. All I have to do is toss them around the room and say, "Go sit on your pillow." Instantly every child makes a dive for their spot and is perfectly happy to sit there while they watch a show, eat their snack, or look at a book. And when the pillows are spread far enough apart, nobody is close enough to poke, swat, or generally annoy anybody else. I'm in heaven, I tell you. At last, keeping the peace doesn't seem to be an utterly impossible task in my family room.
|Mouse's Pillow Front|
After finishing Bunny's pillow earlier this week, I instantly saw the potential and worked feverishly to complete one for Bear and then one for Mouse. As I said in the first post on these, the squares are all exactly the same. I just mixed them up a little and quilted them differently.
|Mouse's Pillow Back|
Bear's top has wavy vertical quilting down the front, and I stitched a quarter inch away from each seam on the top of Mouse's pillow. I also left off the border on the last two pillows which made the covers fit a little more snugly, just the way I like them. Bunny prefers the loose fit of her pillow, though, so everyone's happy.
I love these floor pillows! I can't wait to make one for my baby girl and baby boy! I should make one for the hubby too :)ReplyDelete
So cute (the girls and the pillows!)ReplyDelete
Such a good idea! What size are did you make yours?ReplyDelete
Ha!! You are too funny! I better make some for my kids and see if it helps out over here too!ReplyDelete
I see a puppy dog in that pic that looks very sad that he doesn't have a pillow....hint hintReplyDelete
Great idea! I don't have kids, but if I did... I'd take your floor pillow advice! As usual, I love your fabric combos :DReplyDelete
Wonderful idea! Love the fact that they are all the same, only different!ReplyDelete
Love the pillows - especially if they magically make the loungeroom a peaceful place! Gorgeous fabric choices!ReplyDelete
Those are really lovely pillows. Thanks for sharing the story how they work in action too. ;)ReplyDelete
Gorgeous, all of them, and the cushions!ReplyDelete
Love them! Does the dog have one, too? ;)ReplyDelete
Those are great and you can tell how much your girls love them! Nice job!ReplyDelete
So cute, I love how each one is subtly different. Lovely pic of all the girls sitting there :DReplyDelete
Very sweet. I can't imagine those three little angels fighting........: )ReplyDelete
Neat! The last picture is really sweet.ReplyDelete
Very fun! Aren't you the clever mama!? ;-)ReplyDelete
These are so cute! I'm curious, what size are they and what did you fill them with? A pillow form or stuffing?ReplyDelete
Adorable! Beautiful fabrics, pillows and children!!ReplyDelete
Now you definitely have me convinced. I would love for my girls to sit on the floor like that and watch a movie without fighting. What size did you make them again?ReplyDelete
Brilliant. But now the dog seems to be wondering where her's is.ReplyDelete
What a fun idea -- I'm not a mother but I can see many uses for these kinds of pillows. What size did you make them, and di you have pillow inserts already?ReplyDelete
Lovely cushions, I need some of these, although I don't think they'd have the same effect on my daughter!ReplyDelete
They all look so content! What a great Mom you are :)ReplyDelete
