    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    That is an adorable pillow. Great idea to add a handle for the little ones to carry it along. Did you add a zipper closure or a flap tab?

    Rhonda K, the back is just envelope style (over laps in the back, added the extra stripe strip so that I could use snaps, but that addition made it very stable so snaps were not needed. Rennie, the design (reading critters) and words are from JuJu.
    Thanks to all for the nice compliments!!!
