Imagine a sweet little girl who has stolen your heart resting her head on this homemade Pink baby pillow that has Hand-crocheted edging on it. Pink baby pillow measures 16" x 12" and comes with a polyester filled pillow inside. The curator then made a beautiful hand filet crochet heart motif edging for it and it is hand sewn to the edge and fed with satin ribbons that tie on the four corners of the edging. The ribbons can be sewn down or easily removed by the purchaser. All are fully washable. Happy Valentine's Day !http://www.etsy.com/listing/90543901/homemade-pink-baby-pillow-for-valentines?ref=v1_other_2
Dreams are now reality~Using soft # 10 variegated Pink crochet yarn I crocheted this edging from a vintage pattern and fed ribbons through the top and then sewed it on this homemade soft baby sheet that measures 29 1/4" by 24 1/4 ". There are a total of nine hearts on this edging. Ribbons and edging are sewn onto this sheet/ lightweight coverlet. This can be bought as is. ~ The edging can also be bought separately in the length that you specify to create your own romantic piece for adults. Send me a conversation if the later is the case to discuss price.
Care Instructions:Machine wash, dry, and iron to flatten edging.
