Burlap Heart Pillow, with a trick for cutting out the burlap

Here is my new pillow design.

I am happy with the way it turned out.  

Burlap can be so messy for me to work with so I tried a new technique:

1-place a template of the shape(heart) you want to cut out on a piece of burlap
2-outline the template with Liquid Stitch 
3-remove the template and let the Liquid Stitch dry completely
4-now you will have an outline of where to cut out the shape, I was able to cut it so easily with out any mess
5-use spray adhesive to attach your shape to the pillow front
6-sew it on with a zig-zag stitch
7-finish your pillow!

Do you have a trick for working with burlap?  Let me know.

Pillow for Valentine's Day Decorating

I made this cute vinyl cut out for a re-purposed cabinet door last year for Valentine's Day.

These days I am just crazy about making pillows, so I made it into a new pillow design.  

I think it would be a cute teacher gift.
This pillow cover is 18X18, hand sewn using an off white cotton fabric.  
I just used acrylic paint in black and red.   

Please share if you make anything like it, I would love to see variations!

Who still loves CHEVRON? New Pillow Design!

Summer is flying by here.
Fun with friends and family
Bible Camp
Science Camp
Art Camp
Time at the Pool
It has been great fun with the kids!
I have been busy filling orders for pillows.  Lots of "State Love" hand embroidered pillows and hand painted monogram pillows.
I have a few ideas for new designs and finally had time to create this one.
I call it the Chevron Double Cross Applique Pillow.
Hope you like it.  I might just have to make one for myself because it matches my master bedroom decor perfectly, my hubby even said so!
