Pillow talk

For the longest time I have had pillows on my 'to do' list. I am mildly obsessed with pillows ;) There is just something about a pillow that warms a home to me. Seeing a pillow nestled upon a chair just seems to invite you to it- It's almost as if the pillow is saying, "Come sit down, relax, take a load off, and stay awhile" ;) My craft studio is loaded with fabrics and many of those fabrics I have purchased with pillow making in mind. My fabric pile is getting a bit ridiculous and there are many spots throughout our home that are begging me to make a pillow to warm it up SO pillow making is exactly what I've been up to. I created this small lil pillow for our master bedroom

I adore the picture on the pillow but thought it needed just a lil something, something so I embellished with a key (Representative of my love, David, who holds the key to my heart), an antique tag with 22 stamped upon it (representative of our wedding date), and a flower (representative of our love that continues to grown and flourish with time)

Oh I love it! Did you use that print and iron on stuff for fabric? I have totally been wanting to try this. Great job!
