Pillows & heading back to school

School starts on Monday for us. I've been keeping this in mind as we have been enjoying lazy mornings and not eating breakfast until 9am!  I know the hustle and bustle of next week will be here soon enough.

The 1st grade teacher sent out a request for 'fun' pillows for the kids to use during reading time.  Knee jerk reaction in me, and I offer to make some.  These pillows head to school today in our open house and opportunity to take school supplies to school...I admit that I will make more...unless lots of other parents have also made/bought pillows...but I'm guessing that won't be the case! 

I used some purple corduroy on the back of the rainbow pillow for some extra texture, and because it's Colette's favorite color!  I think the backs are nearly as cute as the fronts!
