An Engagement Pillow



One of my son's best friends is getting married in June. The picture was taken from their "Keep the Date" announcement. Not sure of their colors, I decided on a neutral pilate. As it turned out, they received gray sheets for their bedroom so I think this might work great in their bedroom. His fiance said the photo is one of their favorites. Best Wishes to the Happy Couple.


If you have an anniversary or announcement of any kind, think of having a keepsake treasure created of the the event. Pillows are less expensive than quilts and can usually be received quickly. So please keep it in mind next time you need a special gift!

Quilted Picture Pillows!

After seeing my photo pillow, Pam asked if I could make some pillows as Christmas gifts for her son, daughter, and mother. I was delighted to have this special and challenging project.

Her daughter's pillow:

I suggested if she had any of Kayla's (her daughter) dresses maybe we could make a pillow out of her dress. Pam thought this was a fabulous idea and gave me the dress below. I was able to use the fabric to make this adorable pillow!





These would make great flower girl gifts! Using her dress or remnants and a wedding photo, we can make a pillow she can display in her room. What girl doesn't want to be reminded what it's like to dress as a princess and to be a part of something as special and romantic as a wedding? And perhaps one day she can give it to her little girl.

Her son's pillow:

Pam's son, Brandon, had a baby boy who died just after birth. Since then he has had a beautiful little girl. I was honored when Pam asked if I would make a pillow for her son using a picture of his daughter and a baseball baby outfit she had kept for years meant for his son. It was definitely the most difficult project I've attempted to do. For a while I was too emotional to even start. I only had one shot at this and I certainly didn't want to mess it up! It was important that I get it right and I really had to think it through before cutting into this precious garment. The result was quite unique and provided a gift that her son told me he "would cherish forever." It was very rewarding knowing I could create (through God's plan) something to help heal, provide closure, or even to feel connected to a loved one we've lost.


Her mother's pillow:

I had enough lace from Kayla's pillows to create two pillows for the Great-Grandmother to match her living room. I did have to fudge a little on Leanna's (the blond) on the inner lace, but still I think from the pictures you can see that they were a big hit!

Perrymen Pillow

I couldn't help pulling this adorable photo for a pillow. I loved the colors and had fabric to match. These pillows make great gifts! about $40 a piece

Perryman Heirloom Photo Quilt

The Perrymen quilt was created as a Christmas gift for Amber's mother in-law. The colors were chosen by Amber to match the recepient's living room colors - brown and raspberry. The quilt contains 30 photos from the family. It features meandering stitching. The photo framing doesn't have stitching in order to accomodate a smaller budget. A similar quilt would run $600.




Uncle Harry's Patriotic Photo Quilt

To honor my husband's uncle, we decided to make a photo quilt. His daughter snuck the pictures out for us to scan and print while her parents were out of town. I used 20+ photos and a variety of patriotic fabrics. We presented it to him at a family party in August. He had a great emotional, surprised reaction and was wonderful!




If I created another quilt like this, I would probably avoid such busy fabric colors and loud prints in order to enhance and show off the pictures themselves more.
