Artistic Collaboration

The other day my daughter went for a sleep-over at her best friend’s house. She’s not even 5 yet, but she takes the whole thing rather seriously. She packed her own little suitcase, her doll, and a separate suitcase for the doll. (I got her these suitcases at Elias&Grace last time I was in London, and they’re great for this purpose.)

Before she left, we made her this little horse to put in her suitcase and to play with in case she started missing her mama (which didn’t happen of course — her mama should have kept the horse herself).

I thought the artistic collaboration was rather successful — my daughter designed the horse, and I quickly copied it in cloth, using my sewing machine. (If you don’t have a sewing machine you could do a similar thing by hand-stitching.) I think it would be a cute idea to make some pillows using the same method. I’ll keep you posted!

Very clever Esther! But – how do you have time for such endeavors with a newborn plus 2 ???! I am impressed!

Oh, OK, I did this BEFORE Ava was born…!
But, must say it WAS done rather quickly!
Can’t wait to try out the pillow idea — might be an even quicker project !

Lovely idea! I’ll keep it in mind! Can’t wait to see your pillows! The Petit Jour suitcases are perfect. I actually got one for my daughter in Amsterdam!! In the beautiful toy shop at Magna Plaza.
