Not all sewing projects can be as exciting as making a new dress; yet I imagine I’ll be getting a lot of use out of my latest FO.
Those of you who follow the podcast may remember I mentioned finding a French family company that made maternity and nursing pillows stuffed with 100% natural cork micro-balls, which I find more eco-friendly and healthy than polystyrene; and one of my plans for maternity sewing was to make my own cover for it.
I wasn’t sold on the fabric when I first bought it, but I have to say it really looks good on the bed – Seb and I have always had a thing for blue, and most of our linen is blue.

As you can see, this pillow proved extremely popular the minute I put it on the bed. Within 30 seconds of discovering the pillow, P’tite Mignonne had worked out perfectly how well suited it is to support your back:
I was thinking only the other day that I hadn’t shared kitty pictures in a while. I certainly wouldn’t have you think that P’tite Mignonne was neglected these days – it really has been quite the opposite.
