I was even tempted by Chloe the Cat and I’m not one to sew dolls! Proof just
how enticing Amy and Kristyne have made the projects in this book. In the end,
I opted for the Spotlight Cushion. Mainly because I’ve been holding onto a
small stack of charm squares Amy kindly included in the very first package she

pillow! Love when a dilemma turns into an even better outcome!
but I tend to prefer zipper closures. So, I busted out my old Singer sewing machine
to sew on the invisible zipper. Love that seamless finish!
