“Reading Bone” – a boneshaped relaxing neck pillow

bookworm Since she learned to read my daughter is a bookworm… no day without reading, no single week without finishing a book.

In her Autumn holidays she travelled to the Netherlands – to Ameland, an island in the Northern Sea – with other young people. When she returned yesterday I surprised her with a bone-shaped relaxing neck pillow… I think this pillow is a wonderful gift for book-addicted people.

I discovered the pattern on a German blog called “creadienstag” – what means “creative Tuesday”. All creative working bloggers are asked on Tuesday  to set a link for introducing their current projects… no matter if the projects are finished or still works in progress. It is alway interesting to see how many creative people are doing wonderful exciting work out there. And this website is also a treasure chest for ideas and always inspiring ( in German language – but sometimes an inspiring picture is all you need 🙂 ).

But here is the “Reading Bone” … and here you find the tutorial in English.

Reading Bone

I love its unusual shape. It is a nice project to use up fabric pieces and it is easy & fast to make. All what you need is filling mateial, 2 grosgrain ribbons and 3 bone shaped pieces of fabric (each appr. 10×18″). I think I will make some more as chistmas gifts for friends & family this year.
