Last weekend, I was persuaded to enter a competition to design and make a pillowcase for a chance to win a Toyota Quilting machine. I've never entered a crafty competition before and thought I might give it a try to see if I got anywhere with one of my creations.
I designed this case of a girl sleeping, dreaming of all things down under, with an embroidered tag on the back that reads: Dream Big. Dream NZ. This design was inspired by all the months I spent back home when the first and last thing I'd think about when my head hit the pillow would be New Zealand and all the things that were waiting for us in our new life.
