Pillows for my Niece!

So, this is a project I tackled before Christmas for a present for my niece. It is always difficult to know what to get her because she lives in Florida and I live in Texas. I only get to see her about once a year, and she is growing up so fast. She is at that age where so is no longer a little girl and is not quite a teenager.
My brother-in-law just got remarried to a wonderful, and crafty, woman. After they got married Chris and Logan moved into Lorena's house. Logan decided that her new room was going to be green and pink. While we were down for the wedding, my mother-in-law showed me a blanket that she was making for Logan that was green on one side and pink on the other.

I just started sewing a few months ago, but pillows are my specialty. I decided to push the limit and try to make pillows that were not all the standard square. I found some great fabric and patterns and was ready to go.

They turned out so much better that I thought they would, and she loved them. They are perfect for her room, and most importantly, I put love into them that no store bought gift could have done!
