"Don't Let the Pigeons Drive the Bus" Pouf

My grandchildren LOVE the stories by Mo Willems! One of their nighttime favorites is "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus" about  a very feisty pigeon who has children and parents telling it "no!" while also secretly rooting for it to succeed.

So when I realized that Cloud9 had created an organic line of fabrics based on the stories, I knew it was a purchase I had to make!

What would be better than sewing up a pouf just right for relaxing while reading ~

I basically used the same technique that I had posted here.  But in place of the store bought piping, I made my own.  The "stripe in teal" was so cute that I had to include it!

I cut the teal piece on the bias so that the stripes would be on a diagonal.  From then on the procedure was the same.

Think the pigeon would be happy with the results too! ♥

That is super cute -- and so are your granddaughters! I haven't seen those books before -- I'll have to see if I can find them for my granddaughter!
