part of my planning for our california trip is making some special things for my son. traveling for little people is incredibly exciting, but when you get tired and you're in yet another unfamiliar bed it can be just plain no fun at all.
this week i made a little patchwork pillow case out of all those cute bits of fabric i've been coveting. this was my first go at patchwork and its in no way perfect, but it has a certain homely charm that i'm pretty sure a three year old won't have a problem with (though he is a virgo)! the pillow is big enough for a small head to sleep on, but compact enough to take on the plane. i also made a point of choosing busy patterned fabric so we can play pillowcase eye-spy if boredom sets in.
i have a bunch of 'making' planned for the weekend, including some gocco print christmas cards, and a dolly's skirt and shoes. what about you? exciting weekends ahead?
