Pillow Talk

Is it a notebook or a pillow?

Handpainted Gift Tag by our Little Man

A little Thanksgiving Gift

It's Thanksgiving Week!  Time to say 'Thanks' to all the special people in our lives.  Instead of writing on cards, why not make a pillow notebook to write on - just like we did!  

:: Materials ::

plain fabric
sewing machine
thread (blue/ teal and red)
fabric markers

:: How To ::

- cut 2 pieces of fabric in either square or rectangle
- layer first fabric on top of bunting and pin in place
- sew horizontal straight lines using blue/ teal thread
- next, sew vertical line using red thread
- write your message using fabric marker or pen
- with right sides facing each other, sew both fabrics together
- leave about 5 inch opening to insert pillow stuffing
- reverse/ flip to right side 
- insert pillow stuffing
- sew opening to close

Now, bask in the joy you'll see from your special one.

And Huge Thanks for stopping by and being my friend here in the blogosphere.

Happy Thanksgiving!
