First Birthday Cushion






I took a leaf out of Miriams Create Hope Inspire Blog and made a cushion for an up coming birthday. The special first birthday has been and gone, I remember the time when she was just 2 days old very well and I was so excited to celebrate her first year with her and the family! 

A made the Goose a colourful pillow with her name embroidered onto the back. When you have a big sister you dont get much to call your own (trust me, I know) so I wanted to make something that was too awkward to pass onto someone else! 


We'll be attending a lot of first birthdays this year, sorry babies, you'll all be getting your own pillow! ;)
Miriam, thank you so much for the inspiration!!

  2. I said it to Miriam, and I'll say it again to you - this is such a cool idea!! Handmade gifts are always amazing, and I love that you made this solely hers (I've got a big sister, and an older female cousin...hand-me-downs all the way!) xx

  5. Love the floral fabric, gorgeous colours for a little girl......

    Great idea to personalise it with her name and make it extra special.
    I'm sure it will be hugged and loved for years to come.
