Happy New Year! We just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you who take the time to look at our projects, try a few, share them with their friends or colleagues or to send us your own ideas. It has been one of the best parts of 2014! With sincerity, The Scorer Family- A fun keepsake! (We made these for Grandma & Grandpa!) Materials Blank pillow case Pillow insert Iron photo transfers & iron (used by an adult) Embroidery floss Needle Scissors Directions Take some photos. We went with the kids outside, pretending to catch snowflakes. We then sent them to a photo lab which printed the children’s image on the pillow case. You could also print the images onto iron transfer paper and iron them onto blank pillow cases (following the product directions). We then sewed snowflakes onto the pillow case using embroidery floss and a needle. (Be sure to knot the end of your floss!) Our daughter is learning to sew and we went with a simple pattern. Once knotting and trimming any excess floss, insert your pillow into the case and give it to someone special! Purpose Learning how to sew Safety Notes Use scissors with supervision and care. An iron should be used by an adult if you go with the transfer option. Please like & share: Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
