Pillows for Pre-School
JW's pre-school is an amazing place and we feel pretty lucky that she and C have had the opportunity to spend time there. C was lucky enough to have 2 years of pre-school but, because of where her birthday falls, JW will only have 1 year before heading off to big school. Term 4 has just begun and I can't quite believe that I am turning my mind to orientation mornings, information nights and end of year preparations. With this in mind I have been more aware of how special JW's 2 days a week at pre-school are and how much I will miss this place, and the wonderful teachers there, next year.
One of her favourite things at school is the reading corner. It's a special nook set up for comfy reading and often when I pick her up she is sitting there listening to a story being read aloud. The cushions are looking a little worn so I made a few new ones to brighten the space up for the rest of the time that JW is there and to make it a little cheerier for all the kids who will be there next year. She picked a bright donkey fabric and a striped fabric that I had in my stash and I got to work.
I dropped them off this afternoon when I picked JW up, she was very pleased to see the cushions in their new home. They're a very simple envelope backed cushion cover but they make a big difference to the space. I did a simple tutorial while I was making them so if you'd like to make some too click here for the pictures.
It felt so good to be sewing again.
