Leah is my family, thanks to Elliott. Her mother recently passed away, and I used some of her mother's treasured fabric stash to make this pillow, a gift for Leah.
It was heartwarming to make, and Leah could recall many of the garments her mother made with the fabrics I used. That's the amazing thing about sewing, isn't it? It's time travel. You can look at one piece of fabric and recall the past. You might notice that I included two scraps from my stash, which I think work well with the fabrics from Alice.
I wish I could have met Alice. She loved to sew and I'm sure we would have had lots to talk about. I have plans to make some more gifts for Leah and her daughters, so they can have little reminders of Alice, always.
