Even if babies are too small to really understand Christmas shouldn’t they also get a little present? My friend Katia has the cutest little boy Trevor and I wanted to treat him with an extra comfy lounge pillow for him to chill, watch TV or sleep. He loved it so much he didn’t even want to sit on it and instantly would lay back and lounge lol

The theme in his room included a Dutch cartoon Nijntje (in english Miffy) which is why I chose to make a Nijntje lounge pillow but feel free to adapt it to the baby’s wish 🙂

What you’ll need:
– 1 yard/meter of white fleece (mine is from
– black felt
– pillow stuffing
– thread
– fabric scissors
– pins
– sewing machine (I use Brother DS140
