Pillows for an Odd Duck

Ava's pillows covered in Lizy House, Red Letter Day, fabric with red ric rac and a zipper. oh, also lined in white muslin.



Ava loves these pillows. I mean LOVES them. They are her thing that she has to have (there are two and she knows it so don't try and fool her by handing her only one!). After I covered the pillows I documented the drama that ensued. This is the story:



Here's the pillows before (ugly, right?)

Now below is Ava discovering that I covered her beloved pillows. MELT DOWN. About 5 minutes of her yelling GET OUT! and STUCK! and crying like I killed her puppy.



While trying to calm her down, I asked her which duck was Ava and pointed to the red one and she immediatly stopped crying. I named every duck on that pillow after someone we know or a cartoon character. She was in love again (see below). Her pillows got hugs and some rolling around on them and all was right in the world.. until....



I asked Emily to hold one up so I could get a decent picture of it.

I'm not new to her and this love for the pillows so I don't know why I asked Emily to touch them. This (below) was the 2nd round of drama.



It's over. She so far has gotten the pillows freed from their fabric jail once and because I slaved over the covers, I refuse to let her win this. They got put back inside and she just has to deal with it!


I captured some back fat AND curls (although blurry).


Ava wearing the Simple Servant Frock that was Emily's. I think this pattern is not being sold anymore...(from here).

how did I miss this post?

Why am I not surprised by Ava's reaction. I liked how you fixed some drama, then caused some more =) That is so something I would do.

Miss you guys!

SO FUNNY! I missed this post until now too... OH MY she is cute and hilarious. In that first one of her in the servant frock she slightly reminds me of Drew Barrymore as a little adorable girl in E.T. Just her profile. Love that hairstyle on her.

LOL Ava's soo funny. The pillows are very cute though!
Ava looks soo much like Emily in the very last picture- I almost thought it was Emily, only younger, for a minute there.
Hope y'all enjoy the states!! :)

The back fat, the curls, the melt down? Oh she is cute! I'd have a hard time not giggling at her sweet face!
