Blog Pillow ... City Crafter Challenge


Hi there ...
It's time for another challenge at City Crafter ... And can you believe this week it is our 100th challenge? 
My how the weeks fly by ...
This week our lovely Kirsty creator of City Crafter is hosting for us and the challenge she has set us is 
"Things in My Heart"
In other words ... create a project that pertains to things in your heart right now ... this can be anything from perhaps your loved ones to a form of art that you love right now ... there are no boundaries so just let your creativity flow ...

For me right now I am loving printing on fabric and making things from it ... you've seen some of my pin cushions and hearts ... I also love blogging ... being part of this wonderful group of creativity all over the world ...
So it was a simple choice for me to make ... a pillow with my blog header on it 


This sits on my bed so I can always be reminded of the wonderful friends I have out there and the things I have learned 


The blog header was made and designed by me using graphics from the fabulous Graphics Fairy ... which I shall be linking this up to for Brag Monday ...
 I printed it onto white cotton fabric which I then stitched to a calico fabric ...


... added some lace, ribbons and buttons and attached the whole thing to a pillow case cut from the same white fabric... edged with more lace ... Then I just sewed it all together and made a filling for it 


This week we are offering a Guest Designer spot to the winner of the challenge ... so I do hope you will join us and show us what is in your heart right now.

Thanks so much for stopping by ... I know the rest of the DT will be thrilled if you hop over and check out their creations ... and also that of our Guest Designer this week ... Sabrina Radeck ... her beautiful creations can also be found Here

I'm enjoying spending time with my sweet Aunt ... so I'll bid you all a wonderful day and catch you soon

Ros this is lovely; a gorgeous pillow based upon that beautiful blog header on your blog. And the idea that you are thinking of us when you go to bed :) You are such a sweetie!
There is something in that image filled with birds and butterflies that took my breath away. It has something vintage, shabby, nostalgic and elegant. A precious pillow, a priceless keepsake!
Have a lovely time with your aunt!
