My mother’s birthday is in a couple days.  I like for her gifts to be unique and special, for she is such a special lady. 
My girls love their Nana.

For this project you will need:
scissors
pins
sewing machine
thread
needle
bias tape or ric rac
piping
fabric (2) 12" x 14" pieces
pabric (paper fabric)
a fabulous artist to draw a picture for the front of the pillow

Step 1: Color something beautiful

This year I had them draw pictures of Nana or of themselves with her.  I had planned to make gifts using each of the pictures, but I have so far only made a gift with one of them.  I borrowed a gift idea from a friend and turned the picture into a pillow.

Are you using the Crayola Fabric Crayons?
Those would be great for this project.

They would be great for this. But, I actually had my girls color on regular paper with colored pencils and then copied the picture onto printable fabric.
