Bristol On The Go Reading Pillow ~ Kids Project



This is a great beginner project for children. If you are on the go a lot, the Reading Pocket Book Pillow by Polkadot Chair is a great way for your little ones to bring along a few books and even have a pillow to lay their head on when they get sleepy. It's a cute gift idea for someone who loves to read. If your little one is 8+ years old, they can do the project by themselves as they learn to sew!
