Hello! I am Rubyellen from Cakies and I am excited to share with you my little project for the Color My Summer Series.
color my summer
I have 3 little girls and there are two colors that dominate everything they love… red & pink. Today, let’s focus on the red. My little girls also have two things they love to draw the most 1) their family 2) hearts. What little girl doesn’t love doodling hearts all day long?!! Thus, I combined their love for hearts and red and came up with the “hidden in my heart” pillow.
Between little trinkets they collect, little drawings they make, or their favorite polaroids, they needed a little something to keep their special little treasures together. This little pillow is perfect for holding those little treasures, which sometimes revolve daily, and is also perfect for hugging their treasures when they go to sleep. Maybe if your kids are able to read, this is also the perfect spot to sneak them a little love note or treat.

The pillow may be one of the easiest things to make, but if you head over to my blog, I will be glad to give you a sort of step-by-step. Happy crafting folks!!!
Thank you so much Kirstin and Jordan for allowing me to have a little heart-to-heart with your readers! I can’t wait to see the other projects that will be coming up next!!!
