A lady asked me to make a little army of these for her healing store so I set to work yesterday and this what I came up with! Now I just have to make tags to talk about them a little and how affirmations work and what the pocket on the back is for Smiley

These are beautiful, such a nice idea. I would love to see these as a project at a women's shelter or something.

The fronts are just canvas that I've primed and painted and they measure around 4.5x4.5" Smiley

Very nicely done! Did you ever figure out what the pocket is for? I had never heard of an affirmation pillow.
 The bottom left one is my fave. She reminds me of the Virgin Mary.

Well I put the pocket there to store your affirmations. I figured putting your affirmations in writing adds more strength to them...makes them more tangible...so I put the pocket there as a place to store them Smiley

(I had never heard of an affirmation pillow before, either. It just seemed like a natural thing for me to do, for some reason!)

They are truly beautiful and I think the pocket should be for your rosary or a healing stone or quartz or anything that would make you feel comforted.
Really wonderful small works of art! Smiley
