My daughter was invited to another birthday party, so she made another cushion.

She is getting really good at making these.  At only 6 years old, she already knows how to put right sides together and follow the edge of the foot to get that nice straight 1/4 inch seam allowance.  She is starting to get the hang of the iron, and this time, I showed her how to turn the cushion inside out and use the tool to get nice corners.  She even designed the embroidery herself on my computer and picked out her thread colors.  The only things she didn't do is cut the fabric and hand sew the opening closed.  She even let her little sister help her stuff it!

Her friend was thrilled with his gift and she is so proud of herself!  
So is her mama!!
