My LJ's BFF(best friends forever) was moving to Mexico. I can remember when I was that age and how your BFF was everything to you. I am saddened that both girls have to endure this. ;(
On Thursday, with one day left of school, and my DD's BFF leaving, my DD wanted me to make something "special". Thank you DD! I had to come up with something quick, special, and hope that I had all the supplies I needed. I went to bed that night not knowing what to do and knew I had to have it done by Friday afternoon!
Memory pillow.... that's it! Pillows are generally quick to make. I found some fabric leftovers I had from another project and decided to use that! I asked my DD for a picture of her and her friend that I could place on the pillow!
I used photo transfer paper that you print the picture on. You then transfer it to fabric with your iron. It was somewhat a tricky process as this was the first time I ever used this product.
Haste makes waste as they say, because the quality of it could have been much better. User error on MY part, but I think it came out okay....
I also made the back of the pillow sham-like for easy cleaning. Yes, you can machine-wash this in cold water. It really is an amazing product!
My DD just LOVED it! I am making her a replica, as per her request! Her friend LOVED it, too and said the pillows are the colors of her new bedroom!
When your last-minute creativity works out, it is a good day! Under these circumstances, not really. It is a sad day and I have a strong feeling some tough days ahead....
