The other day I was thinking about all the custom pillows I've made for gifts and clients through the years and thought I'd share a few of my favorites with you. They are fun and easy to make with minimal sewing... how about making a custom pillow for someone on your holiday list? With the right fabrics and adornments they can be quite impressive!
An Alice in Wonderland themed collection.
Illustrated Barbie ~ Very romantic!
A vintage French postcard has been copied and turned into the focal point of this pillow.
Who doesn't love a pretty mermaid?
And one in pink too!
This one was very large at 16x16. Hand beading around the cameo with a raw silk bow made it so lovely.
The perfect shabby chic look.
And lastly, a pretty siren by the sea surrounded by real shells and starfish. A delicate and very pretty display piece. Don't lean up against this one or it might break! Not your typical pillow. I actually taught a class on how to hand sew and design this pillow a few years ago.
I hope you're all enjoying Fall. It's finally starting to cool down here and we even got a little rain the other day.
Let me know if you're inspired to make some pretty pillows for holiday gifts this year! I'd love to see them.
