(almost) Wordless Wednesday


I made John a pillow for Valentine's Day. I appliqued a 3 on it. If you've been following me for awhile, you'll recall that John & I say..."3" for I LOVE YOU. We always end our text with 3 & we even do it on facebook. I love the way it came out.


I made my mom a pillow for Valentines Day too. The photo in the middle is of her and my dad. I believe it was taken around 1966. This was the first time I have used photo fabric...I like it!

I can see me making more pillows in the future. They sew up fairly quick, and are a fun accent to any room. The most expensive part of the pillow is the form, but Joann's has them on sale quite often. I'd like to make a few for my living room, but must finish other projects first!

You do amazing work. I love these pesonalized pillows. They are so much more meaningful than a plain ole pillow.

I love the edging around the pillow. I'm sure they loved these meaningful homemade gifts. You are so talented, and thoughtful!
