Quilted Butterfly Reading Pillow
Reading pillows are pillows with a purpose. What little girl would love this one?!?
Do you have a favorite reader in mind? A reading pillow makes a great gift especially with a new book tucked inside. New readers will be excited for a special place to store their favorite book. We also like the idea of using this pillow to exchange sweet notes or even to use as a tooth fairy pillow.
The butterfly block is a super sweet design, but feel free to replace it with an orphan block from you stash. Coordinating color with room decor or adding an embroidered name are great ways to personalize this reading pillow project.
