For the second year in a row I made my sister a late Christmas gift. This time I didn't even make it a Birthday/Christmas Gift like last time: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=376720.msg4444680#msg4444680. This time it was a Summer Late-Christmas Gift....Yeah I know...I procrastinate a lot Undecided
It all started with me doodling after I finished my benchmark test. I drew a whole bunch of random things and then I ended up drawing this:

BAM! I realized what I was going to make for Christmas! My sister wants to be teacher , so I thought it would be awesome if I made this for her. I ended up making it during the summer, and surprisingly it only took me 3 days to make Cheesy:










Here's what it looked like when all of the individual squares were finished:


Here's what it looked like when they were all sewed together, and I had done the border:


And here's what it looks like when I sewed on the back and the zipper, but there was no pillow inside:

AND FINALLY here are a close up of the squares:

A pencil

Pretend "Play" Money

Scissors

The numbers 1,2,3

The letter "M" (for my sisters name) and a mountain, a moon, and a map

Math symbols (Adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing)

Glue

Shapes (Triangle, circle, square, star, rectangle, and heart)

And (my personal favorite because it turned out so well) A blue Crayon

My sister loved it Grin
