I made this pillow with a little girl's room in mind. It's actually quite a versatile pillow. It could be a Christmas pillow - because of the gingerbread theme. But I also think it could be kept out year round in a girl's room or a cottage chic style porch or sunroom. I decided to turn one of the gingerbreads into a ballerina, perhaps the Sugar Plum Fairy? The back of the pillow has a very girly ruffled pocket with a little removeable gingerbread ballerina doll. This could be fun for a grandma to give as a gift. The pocket could hold a gift card or a love note or even....a tooth! And the ballerina becomes the Tooth Fairy. Available right now on ebay. Link in the sidebar.
Also..if you're wondering where I'm getting all these cute appliques from vintage quilts, I buy them from a gal named Patricia on Ebay. She does all kinds of color schemes and themes (scotties, cats, cows, birds, pigs, hearts, snowmen, etc). You can find her by doing a search for vintage_crafter.
