I've been busy making some really cute stuff for Christmas, most of which I will not post until after Christmas on the off-chance one of my family members actually reads the blog. This is what I made for my Grandma, but I'm not spoiling any surprises by posting it. First, she doesn't even own a computer and my Mom told me she has already opened it. She lives in New York, but most of us live in Texas (even though we all think she should live here too).
I got the idea from In Between Laundry. She linked up hers to my party months ago and I thought it was genius. Unless you live in Colorado and your loved ones live in Wyoming.
Since I am not skilled at needlework, I traced the states outlines (mirror image or it will come out backwards) onto fusible webbing and then ironed it on fabric, cut the shapes out and then ironed them on the pillows. I did a big chunky stitch to add some flair.
Linking up here.
