I brought down a slew of Marushka prints (above) that my mother had actually found for me last summer. She wanted to know if I was using them, and of course they were still in the awaiting project pile. She wanted to make them into pillows, and I was game...
They were printed on a light weight canvas and were quite easy to make.
I just cut them off their stretchers and made some welting. She found the blue floral pillows at Target and they went great together. I also made her a striped pillow on the diagonal from the left over welting.
The first go was a bit light, so I darkened and added streaks once it dried...
The kids have been loving being at Mima & Pipa's. They idolize my Dad for many reasons, but currently its because he drives a motorcycle... and he picked up a small one for them too.
His back should hurt today from pushing them around on it. It actually has an engine, but I'd like to keep this trip with no trips to the E.R.
Just realized Joe is wearing an appropriate shirt.
