The Wishing Pillow...



I am having too much fun working on Mimi's room.
She is as girly as girls get, and a fairytale would be the perfect background for her...

Above all things she loves ballet so her room has a romantic ballerina feeling and this is what this pillow that I made last night without planning was inspired by....



What if I tell you that I made this pillow in less than 10 minutes for around $5
without sewing one stitch...  Well it is true!
Let me share with you the little tiny tutorial and perhaps the little surprise that I got while making it...

This is all the material I used:

An insert white pillow from Wal-Mart
{ $3.00 - They are by the bedding area }

 2 Yards of Rose Tulle
&
Some leftover  acrilyc crystals  that I had around the house.


{ TUTORIAL }

The first thing I did was to iron and cut the tag out of the pillow...
I originally bought this pillow insert to make a pillow case for it....
You would never know!



The second thing I did  was make the bow
I am sure you know how to make one... but for me the secret of a perfect bow is after making the original knot to twist the ends to the opposite corner and then make the loops for the bow...
{ look at the first and second picture}

After the bow was done I trimmed the ends.



At this point I thought I was done...
It looked pretty cute to me.




...but it was not Mimi.
This is where the little acrilyc crystals came into place.
I started to glue them one by one... here and there
and before I knew something happened:
I found myself making a silent wish for Mimi with each crystal that I glued....


...I wish you never get tired of dancing... and there was a crystal.

I wish you never stop dreaming... and there was another crystal.

I wish for you to see...
I wish for you to love...
I wish for you to believe...

and another... and another... and another crystal...



And between wishes... and between dreams...  and between tulle...
and between little tutus dancing in my head...
 I wished that I would never forget
how privileged I am to have her...



Darn Pillow!
I was bawling by the end.

OK! I hope you are tired by now of hearing the "pom-pom" of my heart...
{that is how my Spaniard heart sounds ;) }

Such a sweet little pillow! And a sweet little story behind it, I think some of the best things are made with love, which this pillow obviously was. I hope she enjoys it!
