So, after I had some fabric left over from making my witches hats, I realized I had enough to make a smaller one of these pillows. YES!! I got my image transferred on the fabric first, then I managed to hit Joanne's when they were having their pillow forms 50% off. I was tempted to buy more than one, but I sure didn't need extras of these laying around if this didn't turn out as
I'm not sure just what made me grab the stuff for the pillow, but I did and the design was just kind of coming together in an unconventional manner. I didn't have a pattern, I didn't have instructions I just had a vague idea of how to do it. I mean, it's not rocket science, for crying out loud. It's. just. a. pillow. They've been making them for AGES. So I learned a few things for the next time I might get the urge to make some more of these, and I really should, providing anyone wants this one at my craft show next month. In fact, I have some older pillows that my MIL made that have seen better days. I could just save the foam inside and make my own.
Here is the front side of the pillow. The image came from Graphics Fairy blog. She has tons of vintage images that are free for use. It's awesome!
This is the backside, the design I had wanted to try because of that little booklet my MIL had.
I don't know if I'll get to post anymore this week or much next week either. We are going camping this weekend and my son is coming home early next week for his fall break from college. It's also his birthday on Monday and my daughter's birthday is the next weekend and she wants a sleep over party. I am going to try to make myself really nuts by attempting to make one of those rainbow cakes. You can call me crazy or stupid (or both) I'm sure I've been called both without knowing it. ;^) I hate working under pressure, but I swear that's when my best creativity comes to me. LOL! I know I'm not alone in that process either. :^D
So that's it from me for now.
I am linking up to Rustic Crafts Shabby shares Sat., Someday Crafts Whatever Goes Wed.
God Bless and have a great day!
