esther and i craftily conspired today...
baby bea has turned two, and what toddler doesn't need a take-along pillow?
(note the little loop of green ribbon to tote it by)
i had talked to esther about the idea, and she was eager to contribute.
she drew the flower/letter design, oversaw and encouraged every moment of sewing, and was personally in charge of stuffing.
she even sat on the project thoughtfully as the stuffing got stuffier, just to make sure it was fluffy enough for bea's bum.
when the pillow was all puffy and cosy, esther asked
"can we make one of these for me one day, mum?"
