For the 4th of July weekend, Sandra, Bryan and Sarah Wesley Cooper invited us to stay at their family's house on the Spring River. Bryan's mom, "Queenie", is so good to us and always showers us with goodies every time we see her. So we decided to treat her to a special home made pillow that will remind her of our weekend together and the sweet little girls, too :)
To make a handprint pillow, you will need about 1/2 yard of interior design fabric, a 20" by 20" pillow form (or whatever size pillow you want to make), about 6 sheets of felt, different colors, thread, pins, scissors, and your sewing machine!
|Pin all of the handprints in a firework shape onto your 20" by 20" piece of fabric...|
|... and start stitching around the handprints! This might take a little while, but is much easier than it looks. Just be patient!|
|See, if you look close, it's not perfect, but it's cute!|
|Here is the back view with the pillow flap...|
|... and here is the front! I monogrammed the date on the front to commemorate the Fourth of July weekend!|
|Stella loves to pose! Hope you love your pillow, Queenie!|
