Evie and Canaan's wonderful grandmother named Nanny had finished the beds for Sally and Brave Lion. She wondered about also making blankets and pillows for each of these special animals. Finally, she made a decision...YES!!.....she would also make blankets and pillows.
Nanny looked in her baskets with fabric that was leftover from other sewing projects. Delighted, she found some pink and blue fleece that would work just perfect for what she had in mind.
The scrap of pink felt was large enough to be cut as one piece into the blanket with a remaining piece for the pillow.There were several pieces of the blue felt, but Nanny sewed two of them together to be one piece for the blanket and had enough leftover to be the pillow.
Nanny started by embroidering pictures on the little pillows. She decided to use colors of embroidery thread that would go with the 3 colors in the beds. Pink, Purple and White for Sally. Blue, Yellow and Green for Brave Lion.
As Nanny embroidered the pillow and blankets. she thought lovingly of Evie, Canaan, Sally and Brave Lion.
The design on the blue one in the middle reminded her of the grass (green square) sky (blue circle) and of course the bright yellow sun. The french knots in the middle of the flower on the pink one reminded her of flowers blooming!
The embroidery was finished! However the blankets now needed something around their edges. So, Nanny looked in her chest where bits of binding are stored and found the perfect binding...a leftover piece of binding that Jessica had made to sew on a quilt for Evie.
But what about binding for the blanket for Brave Lion.....oh....there was just the right amount of soft blue fabric that Nanny could use to make binding for the blue fleece blanket.
Nanny sewed on the bindings and the blankets were finished!......They looked just right!
Nanny lovingly placed them inside the crocheted baskets.
Later she wrapped them in tissue paper and Jessica (who was visiting Nanny) took them with her on the airplane to give to Evie, Canaan, Sally and Brave Lion.
Nanny can hardly wait to see Sally and Brave Lion in their new beds, snuggled on their new blankets on pillows in the third and final part of this endearing story.
