Home Is Where My Story Begins

Rocking Chair Pillow

I was browsing through pictures and ran across a few photos from my classroom. I don’t think I’ve ever shared these on my blog before.  A few years ago, I decided that my classroom needed a makeover.  My mom recovered my pillows for me and I had lots of fabric leftover.

I decided to make a chair pad for my rocking chair.  I tried a few things that I hadn’t done before, like adding a little trim, machine quilting, embroidery, and working without a pattern.  

Not too bad, considering I was totally winging it!

I used the scraps to make a few floor pillows for my listening center too.

There’s just something so heartwarming about seeing little people feel like they’re “home” when they are in the classroom.  It’s truly a happy place for these little guys!
Happy sewing!

    What cheery fabric, and I love the floor pillows, too! I'm sure your classroom makes the kids feel comfortable and creative!

    That is so cute and so very sweet, Becca! My children, now 40+yrs. with children of their own, had a few teachers like you, but not nearly enough!
