Description

This pillow is for the Pillow Pop group and features my version of "Love Note." Valerie challenged the group to make their own version of a love note pillow as part of a contest. I decided to make mine for my sister (+dtscrapper ) who is my partner in crime when it comes to sewing. We live 3000 miles apart and only get to spend a couple of times a year with each other physically. We talk on the phone every week and swap emails...but I wish we lived closer. One of the things I always tell her is that although the miles separate us, she is always in my heart and with me. So the saying "Always in my heart" represents that...and I had to include the Echino bird fabric in some way because Paula loves birds...so I fussy cut three and appliqued them on the front by hand. I also used that fabric on the back which is pieced and features a hidden zipper.

I used my walking foot to applique the letters and the heart instead of doing it free motion as I just liked that neater look a little better (and thought Paula would too!).

Paula is here visiting and so I got to give her this one in person!!!

How great is this! I love how you used the birds on the front, the happy feel if the whole design and of course the back is super!

Sizzlewaggle

I like the birds, too, and the math as well. Need to find some of that yardage for my daughter the HS Math teacher! Nice job!

Cseawright

What a wonderful and sentimental gift. Love it Wendy.

True

What an awesome pillow and love the combo of the text/ledger and the birds together.

How wonderful that you got to give it to her personally. Thanks for sharing it with us! Lovely

Sewhappy

Fabulous pillow! Love the design, fabrics and definitely the 'Love Note', as I too live too far apart from my sister, (gardencrafter).

Of course I love it. Wish I could have seen Paul's face, it was nice you could give it to her in person. I love your back ground fabric and that heart is so cute. Great!
