First Set of Pillows

I ended up making several pillows (did I say several?  I meant a b** load) and here are the first--a knock off of popular pillows I've seen around Pinterest, and specifically, at Boldloft.com.   Making my own not only saved me money, but also allowed me to make mine more personalized for the couple I was making them for.

Obviously the couple are teachers, and met at school.  If you can't tell, he's trying to shoot arrows through her heart, and she finally takes pity on him and draws the arrow in herself.



I started with a large piece of butcher block paper and drew out the design.  Lucky for me it was stick figures! 
I transferred the design to fabric using carbon paper.

Okay, I don't have a picture of me sewing and trimming thread and sewing and trimming thread, but I did that umpteen gazillion times (it seemed like) until I had sewn over each tiny arrow, the chalkboard frame, the stick figures, and finally, the heart in red.

I love how the finished product turned out!
This was my inspiration.




Until next time,
Go Get Crafty!
