Handmade birthday present

Since the budget is rather tight at the moment I decided to make my mums birthday present rather than wonder around the shops for hours and end up spending a fortune on silly things. For years she has been a fan of Forever Friends bears, so I thought I would try out my inkjet printing on fabric again and make a decorative pillow .

Printing on Fabric (Addictive)

So I’ve been recently exploring new techniques in the craft world and have come across printing on fabric with an inkjet printer. I must admit though it’s quite addictive! 😀 So my first project is finished- a pair of dachshunds on a pillow. For some reason the character of these puppies really cheered me up so though I’ll turn them into something cute. Bit of faux suede and some stitching and Voila! I have printed out some other dogs and puppies, however I’m currently working on another decorative pillow- this time it’s some kittens though!
