A Pair of Silhouettes

Don't you love facebook? I do. It has allowed a lot of us to reconnect with people we would have otherwise lost touch with, whether by choice, time or just because things happen. 

This is the case with today's post.

A while ago, and I don't remember who friended who, but facebook reconnected a classmate and I.  Well we got the talking and then about a week ago she asked me about making a couple of silhouette pillows for her mother.  She snagged a couple silhouettes, scanned them and I then I turned them into pillows.

And without sounding to proud of myself - I did a pretty good job. :) I'm the epitome of humility, aren't I?  ;-)

So here are a few pictures. I even managed to remember to take a few during the process. :) 
The pillows are 18" square and made of muslin.  We were going to add embellishments, but decided after the first picture was taken that they were perfect as is. What do you guys think? Did we get it right? 
It doesn't really matter, because the pillows were met with rave reviews and my friend's mother loved them, and that's all that really mattered. :) 

Well I'm super excited about tomorrow's post. I'm showing off some identical shorts {outfits} for the boys, and the super adorable pictures that another friend took of the boys. 

I'm also excited to share with you guys, that Dev asked me to teach him how to sew, so we are almost finished with that project. I ran out of fiber-fil. Sadness. 

I'll see you guys tomorrow!
