An extra special gift

Remember the house shaped pillow I made for Zoe?

Well, Zoe told me that I had to make one for Sophia, her cousin and my adorable god daughter. Her birthday was coming up and I thought that it would make a perfect birthday present.

I made Sophia's a little different from Zoe's. I changed the shape of the roof and I included a door that doubles as a pocket so that she can put her treasures in there or even a doll.



It was her birthday yesterday and her mom called me last night to tell me that Sophia absolutely adored it and at that moment was contently sleeping with it.

How sweet is that?
