Holiday Pillows - Fast and Fun



You know.. right?... Graphics Fairy


I was not quite sure I was going to be pulling off a Graphics Fairy project this week. Been lots to do, some deep things to think about and then a very unexpected Kidney Stone ( OUCH!) on Saturday have put me a bit off track!


Miracle of miracles I woke up on Sunday not feeling all that bad, achy lower back, and sort of wrung out but itching to be out of bed for sure.  This is when a very good crafting and sewing stash comes in handy. Without even a trip to the store I was able to create this cheery little pillow as my very LAST project of the holiday season. ( Wish now I had done some piping.. such is life)


The elf and squirrel image is from the Graphics Fairy and I added the text.  I then used a piece of Artist Transfer Paper and ironed it to a piece of quilting cotton that was already over printed with text. I really love the way the text came up through the red image!




I sewed it up as a pillow cover that can then be easily stored away after the season, but  since it was quickly adopted by the king of the family ( Koko) you might be seeing it well into Spring... who knows.


So.. here is the deal.. I have not hosted this image for download  (all night kidney fun has left me more tired than I would want to admit)  but if you are wanting it for a quick project let me know and I will send you a file via email.. ok?


Things will be pretty quiet around here until the New Year..  no worries, just regrouping and getting set for a fantastic 2012. 


I wish each and every one of you a most joyous of holiday seasons.

What an adorable pillow, Maddie! Really love that fun image and the font on the sentiment is fantastic. You are so amazing with just whipping a project out like that.
So, so sorry to hear about your kidney stone. That does not sound like a barrel of fun. :(
Wishing you and yours a very merry holiday season!

So cute. I really like the way the light text comes through too. And your choice of words and font are great.

This is such a cute and unexpected way to use the image. It's delightful and yes, I see no reason why it shouldn't stay out all year.

Sorry to hear about the kidney stone, though. I thought naughty little girls got coal, not stones?

I really hope you're feeling better by Christmas and yes, don't worry about blogging. It'll still be here in 2012

I love this image too and works really well on the cushion. The text is a nice touch! Lou
