Be prepared to die of CUTENESS

Okay, we have a dear third sister, that we didn't allow in our little quilt company and blog. We are super mean we know!!! However, she is SUPER talented in all her crafting endeavors. And because we love her, and really love this project, we are featuring her fabulous craft here...


How darling are these? This is my sweet niece with a super cute pony in her hair...

And can you tell that this sweet blue boy is actually a trouble maker? He only looks sweet and adorable...


Here are a few close ups to see the detail, she captures the eyelashes and hair!!!

She is making these custom pillows for her cute etsy Sweet Shabby Shoppe.

She starts with a good profile photo of her subject (children, babies, pets etc.) She tells you specifics on how to take a good profile photo when you order a pillow from her cute shop. She takes your photo, and with some mad photoshop skills, and a screen printing technique she transfers your child's silhouette onto the pillow.



This is a very detailed and custom product. It would be a great gift. She is also taking Christmas orders for the next few weeks. We ADORE these, and hope there are a couple of these pillows under our Christmas trees. :) Make sure to visit her etsy shop. Her button is our our sidebar, she is our first sponsor. She will be paying us with Silhouette pillows, because we would never feature her out of kindness and love. Is that wrong?

Yes, they are that cute, I know the kids. It is a process she came up with to make the silouette transfer to fabric, and it is amazing how detailed the silouettes are. Better than I have seen any done anywhere.!! SWEET!

These are really well done. As a Kindergarten teacher, silhouettes are something we did every year at graduation. And me, with all my craftiness, found them so hard to do! For years, my teaching partner would do hers and mine, for trade I would do the mounting and laminating! Nice finish!

They are gorgeous! I had a silhouette made from black paper adhered to a white frame when I was 12 - these brought back lovely memories!
