|for ben with love|
today's creation uses this saying:
reading is dreaming with open eyes
it can be found on my kids bedrooms board and was originally pinned from the piccsy website and i loved it as soon as i saw it because it reminds me of my son ... my son reads and that's an understatement. he reads with passion like no one i know. his best friends are books, once he finished hockey practice yesterday his best friend was a famous five omnibus. he reads really fast, faster than his mum or dad because he needs to know the story once it has started and i love that. even though he reads fast he never misses the details because that's what best friends do. i dream when i listen to sport, for him it is books.
for that reason this saying is being made into a pillow for his bed ... just in case anyone forgets what books mean to him and why they are so important to him ... like me when i find him sitting by his door with his pillow using the hall light to finish reading a book at 9pm ... his aunt was just the same and luckily she turned out awesome (i'm not biased at all)!
the actual creation is really easy, i typed it up in word and then printed it out on fabric, sewed it into a cushion, and threw it on his bed! if you haven't printed on fabric before, YOU SHOULD ... it's just so cool and the tutorial i did on day 28 from the pickled pepper patch gives you all the info you need to do it yourself :)
outcome: a neat pillow with something special on it that reminds me how ben sees the world through books ... now that's a cool creation and what's more he loves it too :)
