The Princess and the Pea


Our niece turned 4 over the weekend.  It's hard to believe another year has gone by already.


It's not that often that I get to do much girl sewing, so I made a set of mattresses and a princess to go along with a copy of the story as a gift.

 

I hope she likes it!  Happy birthday, Julia!
