I love a throw pillow with words on it. But I don’t like it if the words mean nothing to me. And, to be honest, it would be hard to find a fabric, or throw pillow I like, that had words that would perfectly describe, or say, something that I would want displayed in my home all of the time. So…. I made this.
I chose my words from the The Family: A Proclamation to the World
Here is how I made it:
I cut out the fabric 2 inches wider that my pillow form – I did this because I wanted to write the words past where the seams would be, and I just trimmed the seam later. Oh – and I used duck cloth.
And I just used a big fat permanent marker and wrote in several sizes and fonts
* Maybe you could have your husband and kids write some of the words
Then I just sewed the 2 squares together. That’s it. Easy!
I have grown to love this pillow more and more as it has been in my family room now for a few days. I love what it represents.
What words describe your family and what you seek to stand for?
