Mother’s Day Pillow

I finally fired up the sewing machine today.  I have been spending time with our  new grandson instead of making pillows for my Etsy store.

I knew it would feel good to get back to tending the store.  I have neglected it long enough. I still had to play with Mason between seams so it pretty much took the whole afternoon to complete it!

I love how it turned out.   I got this done just in time for Mother’s Day, which is May 9th.  Of course, this pillow would be a great gift any time of year.



I adore the all cream color palette.


Isn’t the image of this mother and baby just gorgeous?


I had to add a cluster of tiny hand made flowers.


It has my standard envelope style back.

  1. Another gorgeous pillow!! The mother and baby image is lovely and the little rosettes are so sweet.
    I am loving all the picture of baby Mason! The sleepy heads picture from the other day is so cute! It's wonderful "seeing" you enjoying every minute of being a new granny!

  2. Such a pretty, sweet pillow for Mother's Day love.


  3. What a beautiful pillow! The baby and mother are so pretty.

  4. Beautiful pillow and of course you have to play with Mason now. He is more important. I just got a sewing machine and can't wait to see if I can still sew. Have to figure out how to get started first.

  5. Beautiful, Rhoda! I love the flower you added, too.

  6. How Sweet! Just Lovely! Precious for mother's day.
