The two items in my title have nothing whatsoever to do with each other. I just wanted to throw my daffodil picture in, because I did buy a couple of pots at the grocery store and they really were a nice little mood lifter.
I made up a pillow cover for a friend at work. I have this image on my computer at work as the background wallpaper.
It is from Lang and I bought one of their calendars for 2015 so you get access to some computer wallpapers for each month. My friend at work loved this image and mentioned how nice a pillow would look with it. Several times. So, I did what any pressured person would do ~ I caved and made her a pillow cover.
I printed it onto iron on transfer paper and used Osnaberg fabric for the image. I used a brown burlap Damask for the back and did an envelope closure. You can see a really nice tutorial for that type of pillow back here at Kate’s Place.
My friend also loves burlap so this tied the two in nicely.
I had just enough of this trim in my stash to go around the image. The room she wants to use the pillow in has blue and brown.
I enjoyed sewing this up for my friend and she was thrilled to get it. She was showing it off to everyone at work and wouldn’t let it leave her sight (in case someone decided to make off with it!).
It is so pretty and what a thoughtful friend you are to make it for her. I think the best gifts are made by hand with love.
very pretty, kathy! i love using iron on's for pillows!
It's beautiful, Kathy! Lucky friend!
The pillow is lovely, but I wonder about the process you used to get permission from Lang to copy the image?
What a beautiful pillow for your friend. Hope she realizes she's a lucky gal. =)
How smart and beautiful!
It's beautiful Kathy! I am sure she treasures it.
What a pretty image and a super thoughtful (under slight pressure :)) gift!
That's one lucky co-worker! It's beautiful, and it sounds like it will go perfectly with her room. AS for the daffodils, I really need to go out and buy some fresh flowers!
Hi Kathy, What a gorgeous pillow that calender print made. Love the color combo of brown and blue.
So sweet of you to make it for your work friend.
Lovely yellow blooms too.

Looks great and she will cherish it for years to come.
