Ok I got up this morning and just had to make the new nest zone for Zizi. Her pillow was getting really old and the time was ripe to make a new one. Today. The last one I've painted with textile paint, I just can't seem to find a photo of it as I thought I posted it on the blog. Well, will keep looking for it.
My kitchen's theme is funky Dutch in the colours blue/white/red
I just love Dots. Originally the Dutch use red or blue check with the delft type of prints.
I kept it simple as I normally complicate things with my creativity attacks.
I made a cover from the red (used stash for that woot-woot!)
and then made a pillow with a Dutch couple print (used up stash so another woot!)
I filled the pillow with polystyrene balls that waited for a special moment like this for at least 4 years (brought it with me when I moved...so another double woot for using up stash)
I added a label with Dutch Windmills to both covers just to be fancy:
The cute little bear that got nipped by zizi was a gift from my friend in South Africa.
The other cute little one is my own and she's surely going to get a smooch!
zizi always have to share her nest. I posted on my blog when our cat annexed zizi's bed and then colonized it with a fresh batch of kittens. When it was safe for Zizi to reclaim her ground the kittens then in return claimed Zizi as their godmother. A dog's life. No democracy when cats and kids are around.
