I came across this party while reading Anna@Noodlehead post on the Blogger's Pillow Party that Stitched in Color is having every month this year. Though I have made many pillows before, this one is very dear at heart, so I'm submitting Ma Birthday Pillow for this month's party.
This was made a while back in November 2010. The first time I saw the Ginger Tiles print by Sandi Henderson, I instantly knew it would be perfect for the birthday pillow I planned to make for my mom. I used the Ginger Tiles for the front side and Amy Butler's Memento in Burgundy for the ruffles & for the back side of the pillow.
As for the pillow case, I fell in love with the one made by lazyorganizer.com. However, I did not use the measurement given as this pillow is a little smaller than the normal sleeping pillow. I made this 20" x 16". Oh..and I also skipped the quilting part (as I have yet to master that ;).
I was inspired by the way Rozi personalises pillows for her customer, so I did the same with this pillow. But since I don't have an embroidery machine, I just used the alphabet stitches available on my machine. It's written 'LOVE U MA' (in case you have difficulties reading the stitched words ;P). It may not be as pretty as if it was embroidered but I love it :D.
To Rachel of Stitched in Color. Here's my entry. I must have missed the word 'new post' as I was eager& excited to join your party :D.
