Both my kids were born in the first week of January. By the time we've made it through Christmas and New Year's, everyone is almost too pooped to party, so we usually keep birthdays low key and celebrate the end of the school year in June with a gift and some summer spending money. Although this was originally intended for last year's gift, I happily presented it to D last week (and she was none the wiser that the pillow front had been sitting folded on my sewing table for over a year). There wasn't much chance of her ever finding it....trust me, it was well buried under several other WIPs.
This is the second 20" Eiffel Tower pillow I've embroidered and quilted. In fact, the original was one of the very first projects I shared on Poppyprint almost 3 years ago!
I love that there were a set of matching buttons in my Great Aunt Pearl's button box for the back closure.
What's almost as sweet is that D took it to a sleepover on Friday night to show her girlfriends. She hearts La Tour d'Eiffel.
Her pillow is a little softer.
