My niece, Stella, is three and a half years old. Not only has she graduated from crib to bed, she's now ready for her own Big Girl Room. She's going to be a big sister in August, so this symbolic change needs to be special. Here's the concept in all of it's pink and yellow and seafoam glory:
I've been busy sewing up a cover for her window seat along with all kinds of crazy pillow covers. It was very satisfying to apply some basic embellishing techniques like ruching and ruffling to something that didn't need to fit, didn't need to be perfectly measured, and didn't have to be anything but a feast of happiness for a little girl. I was lazy, I made all kinds of little mistakes, and yet I couldn't be happier with how it all turned out.
