Floor Pillows and Dinosaurs

When Emily was about one I made this round yellow floor pillow with the intention of making the other sizes. Well...how many years later? I finally made the next size down! The yellow one measures about 27" across and the pink is about 23".

This fabric has fairy's on it and I have it in blue,

green and a fuchsia which will be the other sizes.


It has handles.. and the cover is removable (a zipper).

I got the idea from these Land of Nod pillows.




About 4-5 years ago I bought this wall display box (one for me and one for my sister) from Pottery Barn. Her and I used to send each other A LOT of postcards and this is where we each kept ours.


I hadn't had mine hanging up in a long time because I barely have wall space in my bedroom so I took out all the postcards and filled it with dinosaurs and other animals.



I had originally wanted to put all my rubber duckies in it and hang it on the bathroom wall but the ducks were just too big. And now I have no wall space there either!



These fit perfectly and I love it! I'm wondering if you could make one yourself?

Out of a shadow box...remove the top frame?

very cool! Love the pillows. I dig the land of nod website.
So can they pull the animals out of the shadow box or is it just to look at?

The pillows are awesome. I want some for me... The animals in the box... I love the way your mind thinks.

The pillows are cool and the shadow box with dinos is adorable! (or scary, or whatever you want it to be!) You totally could make it, but I would suggest having the woodshop make the shadow box part. that would be more sturdy than taking apart one of those frames. You could order them in any size you wanted. Cool idea!

The pillows are great, they look like something you bought at the store really and i like the fairy fabric. That's a good idea for a the shadow. Instead of having the toys put away you've put them on display to go along w/ the theme of their room. nice! :)

So wait? the pillow aren't patterns? that's a lot of work especially since you have to do your own measurements! Good job! And the girls (well ava at least) look like they love them!
