I've been eager to share with you a little something I made on Monday night, but with this yukky weather we are having I only got the chance to snap afew shots this morning.

Amelia made this sweet little pocket quilt for her little one who started school last week. 

I fell in love with the idea and asked Bethany if she wanted something similar.  At the time she replied, "no Mum, I don't need something like that". 

Come Monday morning, she asked me for a photo of myself. 
At first I thought the teacher had asked everyone to bring in a photo of their family, but with a little questioning she revealed she just wanted it to keep in her pocket to look at when she was missing me - AAWWWWW - my heart melted. 

She then went on to specify that she wanted it as a "squishy thing" and explained what she wanted. 
Luckily for her I had some printable fabric on hand. 

I used a piece of her favourite fabric to make a little loveheart which I stuffed with fibrefill.  I then printed off a couple of photos, cut them down to size and whip stitched them in place.

She absolutely adores it and I am so glad she had it in her pocket on Wednesday when she forgot to put her lunchbox away and the teacher reprimanded her for it. Ouch!

In other school news, Aimee brought home the class trophy yesterday.

Well done Aimee.  You so deserve it :)

  4. That is adorable. And it makes me want some printable fabric, I've only seen it made into questionable looking quilts but this is the perfect use for it. I am so glad that B likes having something comforting in her pocket too. xx
