My baby turned three this past weekend! It's so sad, no more baby! She's officially a big girl. No more diapers or pacifiers.
My oldest daughter wanted to make her a birthday present and I thought a heart pillow would be perfect. I folded a piece of white cotton material in half, and drew half a heart on it with an fabric pen. The ink will disappear when you rub it with a baby wipe. I found my pen at Wal-Mart.
Then I cut two hearts out.
I sewed around the heart and left a 4-5 inch opening. Then I flipped it inside out.
I used some scrap pieces of fabric to make some tiny hearts to attach to the pillow.
I ironed on some Heat'n Bond and then drew hearts on it. I cut them out, and let my daughter arrange them how she wanted.
She had a lot of fun decorating the pillow for her sister. Then I ironed the hearts on for her.
Then she stuffed the pillow, and I hand sewed the opening shut.
Here is a picture of little sister opening her gift.
