My youngest daughter is 5, and she just moved into her very first "all by myself" big girl room. As the youngest of six kids, having your own bed room is a BIG deal!!
We let her decorate. It started with pink walls. This was a must. Followed by cat curtains. Thank you Amazon for having the perfect gray curtains with cute pink cats!
Then came my idea:
A great pattern by Elizabeth Hartman. I'll clear out my gray and pink fabric stashes, and make a cute little quilt to match her room.
So, the kitten making began.
So cute! And they are fun to make. I'm still planning one of these for my king size bed (sshhhhh... I'm going to try and sneak it on my bed when my husband isn't paying attention! Think he'll notice?!)
And, finally, the end result. I put the quilt in her bed, and then sent her up to get PJ's on. She screams, and giggles and says "I'm keeping it forever!" Gotta love age 5!
