It seems that it’s not just Christmas click-clacking towards us down the tracks…. we’ve had rather a few birthdays to celebrate lately (and my one a week today!!…just saying). I do love birthdays and we have 2 coming up this weekend.

On Sunday a little train lover we know is turning 4 and we have been invited to join the celebrations.

This is what I’ve made him for his birthday. I made his brother an A,B,C cushion for his birthday in March so to stop any cushion envy I thought I’d make a cushion for this birthday celebration too (and they are quick to make and I had the stuff on hand – just keeping it honest here!)

Yes the colours are a little bright, I have no idea what possessed me to buy that lime green felt???? But I think he’ll like it, my boys do. They are bursting with the importance of keeping it secret. Bless them.

Joining in with clever, crafty, inspiring people over at Our Creative Spaces.
