Whimsy House and Fabric Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday!! I am going to hijack the show today and share something very exciting I've been working on!! And yes, Fabric Tuesday is still on!!

A couple months ago I decided I wanted to make my little Lucy a House Pillow for her 2nd Birthday.  I have a stack Up Parasol from Heather Bailey that I knew would be perfect!


Hers is pretty large, something around 11" x 18".


My absolute favorite part is that each door and window open to cute little fussy cut things.  A doggy, kitty (named Lucy!), Little Red Riding Hood and a sweet girl with a Bear.


Generally babies don't appreciate handmade...I can say confidently that she really loves this!! Makes me so happy!  She plays with it at nap time and she'll show me what's behind the windows and doors.  Her favorite is the door because it has a balloon :)


So I decided to crank out some more, a little smaller.  8.5" x 13".


Appliques and little trim details.



AND I've decided to make them for sale.  Eeek! I'm so excited!!


I will have just FOUR available today at 3 pm in our Ink and Bobbin etsy.


Some will have itty bitty buntings :)



AND, lastly I'm GIVING ONE AWAY.

This is an Instagram Giveaway.  It runs through Friday 10/31.
You'll need to follow our @inkandbobbin Instagram account, look for the picture below to see how to enter.  You can either tag friends and/or repost the image.


If you or someone you know loves and appreciates handmade I would love if you let them know about my little Whimsy Houses!!

Sorry for the picture overload!!!
