Anyhow, while peeking at Leslie's good-ness shop (it really is full of goodness!) I came across some delightful Shinzi Katoh Christmas fabric that I just had to have (as well as a few others that just jumped right into my shopping cart *cough cough*).
The fabrics arrived yesterday afternoon and while I didn't completely repurpose an item it felt good to chop up an old pillowcase that was just sitting in the cupboard gathering dust to help make two new ones. Thankyou very much Leslie for the complimentary reindeer fabric, it was just perfect for James' pillow :)
I photographed the pillows on James' bed, but the large Christmas pillow at the back belongs to Bella and the smaller one in the front is for James. They were a big hit last night to use at Christmas story time and then snuggling down to sleep with. We'll take the covers off after Christmas and pack them away with the decorations for next year.
I had a small scrap leftover of the Shinzi Katoh fabric which Bella stapled together to create this fabric basket for her juggling balls that she also made for herself last night (we were out of rice so she added some strips of paper inside lol).
Oh and quote of the night from my little crafty girl "Mum do we have any calico because this fabric basket would be so so cool with a lining inside". Ahhhh I love her :)
