The girls have a reading corner of their room.  My husband built them shelves and the light is wonderful.  The only problem was you had to sit on the floor to read!  There isn't room for a chair.

Problem finally solved when I bought some new walk in the woods fabric from Amy's shop.  The prefect fabric for a floor pillow in the reading corner!

I have loved seeing the granny squares pattern floating around on Pinterest.  Especially the adorable and sweet ones by Jesse!  The original post about them can be found here.  I increased the block size to 5.5" to fill the 24" pillow.

On the back I used a super soft high thread count cotton and again used Erin's method to put in the zipper.  I love that method!  Such a nice and professional touch.  The heart shape with the tag is my only delima.For now it is blank since I couldn't think what to put on there.  Do I embroider "love mom?"  Or elsie suggested I say "reading is fun!"  Or my name and the date?  Not sure for now.  Any suggestions would be welcome!

I actually bought 3 of these 24" pillow forms since they were on sale for only $9!!  So more to come eventually.  Hope you all are enjoying a lovely first day of spring.
