I don't know where she got the idea, but my three year old daughter has made a decision. For this Christmas, she wants a starfish. Seriously? A starfish? Oh, I so wish that I could get into that mind of hers. I haven't asked her if she means a real starfish or a toy starfish, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she understands a real starfish is just not an option. Not wanting to overlook her wishes though - and definitely not in the mood to scour the internet for toy sea creatures - I decided to make a mini-starfish pillow out of some discarded upholstery fabric samples.
I cannot wait to give this little cutey to my daughter!!
Watch for these to appear in my Etsy shop! This little starfish is eight or nine inches across, but I hope to make a bigger one as well - plus some seahorses and fish in various sizes.
