Since I made a Valentine's Day gift for Phil, I thought I should do something for Grace & Anthony, and also for Sarah. I had originally planned to make wall hangings, but decided pillows would be easier.
I found this cute machine embroidery design called Monkeys in Valentine Pajamas, and since Grace loves monkeys, and Anthony supports her obsession, I decided it was perfect for them. Next time I'll try to find something film related for Anthony.
This is the backing fabric I used.
On this pillow for Sarah, I used this wonderful heirloom heart I found on my hard drive, and used cotton heirloom lace and entredeux to join everything together. I ended up sewing the lace around the outside by hand because I forgot to sandwich it between the front and back pieces before stitching them together. The last picture is the backing fabric I chose.
For both these projects I used materials from my stash, so other than the $1.07 for the sale-priced monkey design, there was no outlay of cash. I love projects like that!
