I'm a Pillow Machine and the Winner!

I've been making lots and lots of pillows for the shop this week.  One of my best friends had a baby recently, and I wanted to make him a special gift.  I love how it turned out.
The letters are hand embroidered on, and the scripture is done with my free-motion foot.  I used a soft flannel on the back.  Maybe one day it will be his lovey... :)

This is a big one, it fits an 18 x 18 pillow form.  I love these three colors together.  Add some posie flowers, buttons, and loopy quilting...yum!

I've had this scripture in my head all week, and I finally did something with it.  The pillow is 12 x 12.  I love mixing vintage sheets with some modern fabric.

Another custom pillow for a sweet boy.  I am going to be offering these as custom orders in my etsy shop.  I think they make awesome gifts.

And now I bet you are wondering who won the give-away...drumroll please...

So the other verse I left has been with me from the beginning of my faith walk. I was going back and forth tyring to decide if this next one I should leave for you and since you reposted the contest, I thought I would repost too....

This one hopped into my lap a few weeks ago, thank God for His promises and rewards!!
"Behold, children are a gift of the Lord; the fruit of the womb is a reward." Psalm 127:3
