Hug Pillow

Happy Thursday everybody! The first work week of the year is almost over. Yeah! Can't wait. It was so hard to get up on Monday and drive to work.

Just a little show-and-tell today.

For my Mom's Birthday this year, my sisters and I decided on a Grandkids-Hug-Pillow. We traced everybody's hands. My sisters both scanned the ones of their kids and sent them over, since one is in Germany and the other in Switzerland. I arranged them so that there would be enough room for one more little print for another Swiss Baby coming in March.
Here is the pillow already on my parents' couch.

If you would like to make one too and need some directions, there is a great tutorial right here. I turned mine into a pillow cover, instead of stuffing it. Just in case it needs to be washed.
Pillows like this make great Birthday, Valentines, Mother's Day, etc. gifts!

Also, have you heard of Stitched in Color's big Blogger's Pillow Party? Every month until June you can submit your pillow creations with great prizes being awarded to the winner each month.
