11  Life Pillow for my friend's birthday in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Singlemom on: June 23, 2007 12:42:36 PM
My friend Karyn has been inspirational to me, so when her birthday came, I wanted to give her something special. She has everything she could ever want, and my own budget is pretty constricting, so (in my own craftster-y way), I decided to make her something that showed a bit of her colourful life.

A bag of tangled ribbons, a dismantled pillow, and an upholstery remnant later, I came up with a life pillow. I chose ribbons for each year of her life, lining them up in order across the side and the bottom. I tried to pick ribbons that were similar to what they represented (her husband's favourite pants are orange and he's a flamboyant guy = orange sparkly ribbon; her son is sort of a punk/goth teenager = black ribbon with a zipper look down the middle, etc.).

The result is a little wonky and pretty homey, but still nice. My friend loves it. The pillow now has a place of honour on her bed. Smiley

The Pillow:



Thanks for looking. Tell me what you think.
