Christmas presents for family with 4 children...
Designed to match the decor and color scheme of their family room - these pillows were made with the full knowledge that they will support more than heads and neck. Typical use will include dinner plates, nail polish remover, cereal bowls, computers and the occasional math book, so they needed to be sturdy and machine wash and dry.
The motifs were enlarged on a copier to fit the large (26") pillows and transferred using Saral transfer paper onto pre-washed (because, like almost all home dec fabric - the label says "Dry Clean Only" but it doesn't really mean it) polyester fabric.
The hand-quilting was completed in a few hours. The pillow was constructed with a zipper and a lining (so it can be easily washed) and are ready for a few years of hard use!
