Long Distance Love Pillows-Variations on a theme



My Grandma wasn't the only one that got a long-distance love pillow for Christmas. I also made one for my MIL out of this white dotted fabric and black wool felt. Good thing we don't live in Colorado and she doesn't live in Wyoming or people would just be confused why we loved rectangles.
 

 Next I made one for Aunt Peggy.  She has three adopted boys from Russia.  I found the country outlines online and printed them on freezer paper.  Then I cut out the shapes and ironed it on the fabric.  Then I just painted in each country's flag.
I made this last pillow for my sister.  We adopted her from South Korea when I was 9.  She also adopted a daughter from there and is in the process of adopting another (Adoption Rocks!). 

(Also if you check out the wall, you can get a sneak preview of my plaid wall in my craft room.)

I am super grateful to In Between Laundry for the idea.  It is such a great idea for wedding presents, Christmas presents or even Valentine's Day.
