Pillow, dog bed, or kid magnet?

When “Best In Show” came in, we all thought it was a great new Home Decorating print. Robin thought it would make the cute dog bed, so off she went.  She combined it with our brand new chenille fabric and a winning combination appeared. Making a pillow or dog bed is a pretty quick project that can infuse some pattern and color into any room. Here are a few pictures of the pillow coming together….

As anyone with children knows, the best toy is something that was not intended to be used as a toy. It can be the shoe box from you new shoes or the work pillow I brought home to photograph. I came home and left the pillow on the fire-place to photograph later that day. When I came downstairs this is what I found…photo copy 6

It immediately became a great place for Sarah to play. Before I knew it the doll was out and the pillow was not mine any more.  As you’ll see below, she took her dogs and gave them a dog bed. Needless to say it took a few days to get the pillow back to work with. It is now in the window for you to see, but let me tell you Sarah was  not happy about it. While the intention was a dog bed, it would also be a great throw pillow if it was a bit smaller, but for Sarah it was a great comfy new play place. I guess you’ll have to make up your own mind, dog bed, couch cushion, or perfect play place?
