I just finished my second one of these. I've been trying to find a cool thank-you gift for my friend who played the harp at my wedding. I saw something similar online, but not only couldn't afford what they wanted for it... they were out of stock anyway.

The image is from Stamp Francisco - I had the stamp, so I stamped it on good paper, scanned it, enlarged it and printed it on a white cloth transfer.

Then I sewed it onto fabric using a small zig-zag (the fabric could be ironed-on, but I didn't think this material would cooperate), then sewed the fabric into a pillow shape. Not only was it super-easy, I think she's really going to love it! (One of her harps has a skull & crossbones on it.)


Then I had to have one for myself, of course!

That's the place! Great stuff!! I stumbled across it and had to have one. Other than picking up the transfers and the pillow form, I just used what I already had.

 Cheesy Great Pillow, I actually prefer yours to the one on morning craft- the skull is at a better angle.

Unfortunatley, I couldn't say. I do know that it's "home designer" fabric (on a roll instead of a bolt), probably drapery fabric (not sturdy enough for upholstery, IMO). Someone gave me me a partial roll a couple of years ago, and I have no idea how long it sat in her house. I didn't like it until I made the pillow, and now it's grown on me!
