A Pillow for my BFF
My BFF since we’re 19. She’s having her housewarming cum hari raya open house this saturday. I wanted to make something for her new home so I made her this pillow cover. Combining my various interests in photo-editing and sewing into one. I made a simple collage of her and the many hats she wear. Printed it on an iron-on transfer and transfered it onto a white cotton cloth. Then I just make a simple border from my Andromeda Fat Quarters collection I’ve been keeping.
To be honest, even this photo has been edited. The picture of my friend didn’t come out as nicely as you see here. I’ve wasted 3 iron-on transfers and got the same result so I decided to go ahead with it. This is how I envisioned it to be. So, a tip for those who fancy trying this, keep it to text or simple designs.
To my dear Lynne. Congratulations on your new home. May our friendship lasts forever. I love you my dear friend...
