Star pillow & Moon bag

I made this moonbag for my 3 year old daughter for our world wide trip mid 2009. I found the pattern in an old Womens Weekly sewing book from the 80’s. She loved it as she is called Moonface most times! It was also a god send on those 24 hour flights and in airports. I just rolled it up and as I used a thinnish foam insert I could squash it up quite small in our suitcase. Was a little troublesome to put together so I procrastinated on making it til the week before we went. Pressure always helps!

Material Notes

quilted batting dyed blue, applique face, foam matteress insert, cotton lining and pillow
