|Napkins waiting for the day to become pillows|
But you know how you have these great ideas and they (the napkins) just sit there until tomorrow or the next day or maybe even the day after that. Those tomorrows became years.
So I'm here to tell you I finally got them made. What explanation do I have for finally getting them done? I think I heard them calling to me from the fabric stash begging to be the promised pillows. When napkins start calling it's time to listen and do. Sorry folks that's the best reason I can come up.
The edges were already hemmed so my idea was to just sew two together just below the hem line and then stuff with some loose fill.
Plain white little pillows are just...... plain and I wanted more pizazz like transfer image pizazz. I love the vintage french looking black and white images and the graphic fairy has some really great ones. So I went browsing on her web site and came up with a few that I thought would be perfect for the pillows.
This brings up the point of transferring images onto fabric. Browse the web and you will find all these different techniques on how to do it. It can be a bit overwhelming. After much research I decided that Lesley Riley's Transfer Artist Paper would be my method of choice. It does a wonderful transfer and it's so easy and I'm all for easy.
So I had enough napkins (10) to make 5 pillows. I used 5 different images from the Graphic Fairy.
