DIY doll house pillows

I saw this and this and knew right away that I wanted to make one for Ember.... After one I thought... well maybe she needs four. They are just so cute and don't take much fabric.

 My grandma gave me these fabric rolls about a year ago. They have been sitting in my stash waiting for just the right project. I thought they would be perfect for these little houses. They didn't take much. I could probably still make 15 more.... but I guess I'll stop at four. Maybe I'll make some for some little girl birthdays or baby showers. I think I may be addicted to them.

 I didn't have a tutorial or pattern to use. I thought about making one.... but they are pretty simple.. If there are any requests I might. But its really cut and sew. There is no messing up. They can all be different and charming in their own way... and hey if you want a heart for a window..then why not! Its cute... use your imagination!

I think they are so charming and maybe the best thing I have ever made out of scraps. I need to go get a little basket and throw them and a few treats in for Ember for Easter.

I got thinking after making these. I look at all my sewing notions differently now. All my buttons and ribbons...the lace and rickrack.  Its all just sitting there waiting to be made into something. Right now I have no idea but some day...when the time is right and with the right material it will become something wonderful. All I need is the right inspiration and time. :) Tell then they sit and wait... looking cute in their little jars and cans on my sewing desk... Patiently staring at me.
