This Christmas is no exception. My niece is really into horses and I started with getting her books, but wanted to add something different. I still have an old Girls Annual I received one year for Christmas (very British) - with a picture on the cover I thought was perfect for my "idea".
It was easy enough to scan the cover and print on to fabric. I added backing using my favorite product - Steam a Seam...And after a root through all my material I just happened to find the right fabric that matched.
Which was a good thing because my pal Beth was able to supply me with the perfect horse ribbon to go with the pillow (the colours really match better then the lighting shows).
In case you are interested in such things, here is the back.
So there you have it. I've decided if my niece does not like it, I'm keeping it for myself! I'll let you know if it comes back from Canada with me (LOL). Jewels
UPDATE: My niece thought her pillow was wonderful!
