A little more little girl Christmas...

Okay, here's another one. The recipient got this already so now I can show you.
As you may remember from last Christmas, I love to incorporate books into my gifts as much as possible. I've had the idea for a Princess and the Pea set for a long time. I think I bought the books from Barnes and Noble last summer! I made four little mini quilts to go with the book and attached a felted pea to one. My intention was to be able to let the little girl act out the book with a doll while its being read to her. And I'm sure the quilts will be used for a lot of other fun play!

The quilts are all made of the same set of 4 fabrics, some with just a couple of the prints, some with all four. I have another set of these that I think I will save and give to Sydney. (Mostly because I want to keep one!)

What a sweet gift idea, Roxanne! I'm sure the lucky little girl that received this gift will have fun acting out this story - I think this book will become a favourite thanks to you! Those doll quilts are so pretty, I love the fabrics you've combined.

That is just the sweetest little idea - I'm sure it will be cherished - hope you are surviving the snow - I'm in Australia and I've got no idea what it must be like!
