A Little Here and a Little There

Elizabeth wanted to make a gift for her cousin; so as time allowed she began working a little here and a little there.First she chose two colors, pink and purple and then she began marking and cutting them into squares.

Next she slowly stitched the squares into a pleasing design.

Once the front was finished she cut a back and stitched around the outer edges.

After stuffing it was time to stitch, by hand, the opening closed.

And "presto" a pretty little pillow made by a pretty little girl. I love how Elizabeth always wants to do something special for others.
