Here's two pillows I made recently.  The first is a design based off of phrenology diagrams.  I have done a few of them, and I think I may have posted one a while back, but it was under a different user name and each one I make is a little different, so I thought I might as well post the newest!  These are a lot of fun to do.





This next pillow is a geometric design based off of packaging for Marlboro reds.  I really liked the idea of taking a fairly recognizable logo/packaging, stripping it down to its essentials, and repeating it to make a pattern.  It didn't turn out exactly as I'd anticipated, but I'm still pretty happy with it.

Don't worry, it's just a plastic boob.

I like your phrenology pillow.
Poor phrenology, if only the shape of the skull showed some correlation to the shape of the brain.
