  1. This is one of the coolest things. How inspiring. Chloe is definitely an artist. I have something similar from when my son was about the same age (hanging on the wall in my sewing room)–I might turn it into a pillow!

    That’s WONDERFUL! All kinds of wonderful! I adore my niece & nephew’s art projects but I never thought of using one as inspiration. The two pieces are keepers for sure!

    It’s a great idea to bring paper art into a sewing form. My daughter has loved to draw since she was little, now 11. This past Christmas she wanted a Christmas stocking for our dog (and most of her current drawings are of our dog, Honey). So I enlarged one of her drawings and used it as a pattern make a stocking with Honey right on it. My daughter loved it!

    What a sweet idea! I’m guessing your dd will LOVE the pillow and feel very honored to have her work “copied” in such a way! Way to go Mom!

    Her picture is so cute and I love your pillow. That is so neat that you were able to design something based off your daughter’s art talent.

    What a wonderful idea! I love your daughter’s painting and the pillow you’ve created. What a lucky little girl to have her mom take inspiration from her artwork!

    I love it! Sometimes the simplest designs can be so fun and cheery!

    Such a treasure… her art to you and your artwork pillow for her! Samelia’s Mom (do you read her blog?) just featured a pillow with her son’s robot drawing transferred and then embroidered onto it… you two great minds are totally thinking alike!!!

    Beware the “melty beads”… when my daughter was about 4 or 5 she stuck one up her nose that required a trip to the ER… other than that, they do provide hours of FUN entertainment. Cute idea to use your daughter’s artwork for a pillow! May have to try that with my grandkids now that our kids are grown.

  15. You are so smart and patient to encourage her talent! It’s beautiful.
