Handmade Christmas Gift #2

My Grandma passed away this past June. I knew I wanted to do something special for my Dad this Christmas since it will be his first without her. It took me a while to decide what to do but when I ran across this tutorial from Pocket Full of Whimsy on Pinterest, I knew I had to try it.

I love this picture of my Grandma holding my Dad when he was a baby. The backdrop looks to be my Great Grandpa's farm which is filled with a lot fun memories for my Dad since he spent a lot of time there growing up. The tutorial was very straight forward and the only issue I ran into was my picky printer. When it did finally decide to print, it turned out great. I used a linen colored muslin to print on and a dark denim fabric for the back.

I love this little pillow. I hope my Dad can treasure this tiny little pillow as a special reminder of his Mom.

Happy Crafting!
