It seems like I've seen the design for a book pillow that ended with the words "...and kiss me goodnight" a dozen times. But now that I want it, I can't find it. Does anyone know where I can buy this design?

Memories in Thread is the one I used for my dggs's pillow, but a whole lot more have come out since I was looking for designs of this type.

Hi Penny--The one I've seen is by Stitch Delight and can be found here. There are also instructions for actually making the pillow, but I don't remember where they can be found . If I do find them, I'll add the link here.

The verse is:

Read me a story then
Tuck me in tight
Tell me you love me and
Kiss me goodnight

Several designs from various sellers on etsy.

Join Reading Pillow Fanatics on Facebook. You will never run out of ideas but you may spend lots of money. lol In the files are lists of where to buy and how to make the pillows, zipper, opening in pocket etc.

Thanks everyone! It was close to Stitch Delight's but it was a book pilllow, not just a pillow. There is another one out there that is similar to her style. I think I can probably turn Stitch Delight's pillow into a book pillow though. I'll have to work on that.

Really it's just a pillow with a separate piece sewn onto the front, there are lots of pics online to give inspiration. For an 18" pillow I made my pocket piece about 11" tall by the width of the pillow. It all depends on how much of the pillow itself you want to show on the front. I'm making one more right now for my other dggs with a truck theme.

Lynn--If you like that one, check out this! It would be quite easy to use Ellie with the saying in place of Raffi.

Gillie--The first place I saw the book pillow was on the Stitch Delight Facebook group. I didn't know there was an actual Reading Pillow group . In fact, here is the book pillow and the design.

I have made two but I haven't taken pictures. Some are having lots of sales at craft shows. Of course, you have to get past the copyright ones but lots of inspiration and lots of lovely saying. It has taken me to lots of new sites. Some good some not so good but all in all they are a nice group. I've even down some embroidery on vinyl and that's not bad at 79. lol
