I had the idea to make up tiny little pillows for knitters to gift to friends or to use as decorations in their knitting spaces. Once inspired, I realized it would be fun to make just about any happy thought become an inspiration quote on a pillow or sachet. Thus, the Save the Bees pillow for my dear friend, Barbro.
