King Of The Castle

I hope everyone who chose to celebrate Easter/Spring had a great holiday. Ours was filled with good food and playing children (plus a bit of chocolate) and was quite lovely.

I have been crafting a bit as of late, mainly trying to whip up a few gifts here and there. I've been playing with this shape for a softie for a while now. I don't know why, but I've been sketching this little crown character for well over a decade and I figured he'd make a cute little pillow/toy. I had one on the go made out of a thick upholstery fabric that I scored at the thrift store, but he was a little too off to give away as a gift. So I grabbed some of the leftover linen from the throw pillows I made last month to make this little Crowny.

It's a birthday present for a friend of mine whose last name happens to be King and not coincidentally collects crown images. I added a little embroidery message on the butt (and pretty much stole the face from the Wee Wonderfuls Original Wee pattern) and voila, perfect present. I hope she likes him.

Duh... reread the earlier post... Ikea. What a beautiful bed, though--looks vintage! :)
