Memory Pillow

Hello.  If you are part of the Hero Arts Flickr Blog Hop, you have come to the right place.  I am a big fan of Hero Arts.  Their stamps are the best,  and the company is so generous, educational and inspiring.  My project today combines my old love of sewing, with my new love of stamping.


This is a Christmas gift for my Aunt Pat.  She is the little girl in the middle.  I printed the photo on fabric and made a patchwork border.  The corner patches were stamped with Hero Arts stamp CL383, Antique Engravings.  I used VersaCraft ink, Real Black, and heat set the images.  I think the Antique Engravings  make the perfect accent for this photo.  The photo was taken in 1945 and I have machine embroidered the date and names.  I hope to continue experimenting with stamping on fabric, so be sure and stop here again!
