There is nothing like a hand made gift. I don't often receive them but I do give them on a fairly regular basis. My daughter Lucy had a little friend who was having a birthday -Talia - it was her 8th birthday and she is horse crazy. I was horse crazy too at her age and eventually got my very own horse when I was 11.
So - what to give her for her birthday. Obviously something to do with horses would be good. So I figured a pillow for her bed made with horse fabric would be pretty good. So here it is. I quilted the love heart - I used denim for the front panel embellished with the loveheart and then a mixture of denim, the horsey fleece and a vintage pink chenille for the back. I also embroidered her name on the front and I think it turned out kind of sweet. I would have loved it for my 8th birthday !
