Hello Kitty

Pillow number 4 of 6, Hello Kitty!!!! This pillow will be going across the country soon to reach a niece of mine. I hope she loves it!

I was a bit nervous about making Hello Kitty due to the fact that Hello Kitty is so popular and who doesn’t know her?!  Any Hello Kitty fan can easily pick her out from the crowd and knowing this, I was afraid of making a mistake with her eyes and nose placement. The smallest misplacement could totally throw her off. Oh yeahhhh the stress was on. >=O However I think the final came out pretty good. I was very pleased with the finish pillow.

I had Google an image of Hello Kitty and used it as my layout. I used a combination of minky, velvet and felt fabric to finish the pillow. I also used my new Gingher scissor and serger that the Hubbie had got me this past week. The scissor is a bit heavy and uncomfortable but very sharp and good for corners. The serger as of now intimidates me because I’ve not learn how to thread it completely yet. O_O It will take some time. 🙂

Later on today I will be working on pillow 5. What do you think of the final pillow? 🙂

Hmong Pillows

I’ve been planning my Hmong pillows for awhile now and I think I’m almost done with them. I know I get excited about a lot of things, but I am REALLY excited about these. One of the reasons why is because all my pillow ideas actually originated from them.

You might be wondering “Hmong? What is that?” My background is Hmong and honestly…I don’t even know where to start if I’m going to try and explain, so I won’t. 🙂 There has even been numerous times in the past where I even went to Google for help trying to learn more about my culture. *Chuckle* So instead of explaining I will be designing simple pillows incorporating my culture into them. Hope to have them posted soon. 🙂
