These adorable pillows are ready to make a fun, kitschy statement in your home. Great pop art! They are silk screened on the front, and backed with vintage fabric…white matlesse or white vintage chenille for the girls, and vintage ticking for the boys. The boys measure about 10in. wide, and 12 in. long. The girls are approx. 12 1/2 inches in diameter. Would be a fun gift for both little and big girls or boys. (Vintage Jane, $24)
Cloud cushion hand sewn and embroidered with ‘Sweet Dreams” detail. Perfect for a nursery or as a decorative pillow for your child’s bedroom. Measures approx 27cm/10.5 inches across. There are medium cushions available if you want a bigger cushion. Patterned cotton fabric on back. (The Fox in the Attic, $41)
Hot pink butterflies pop on this soft grey background, creating a striking accent for any girl’s room. This modern design works as well for babies as it does for big girls. A perfect decorative throw pillow for a pop of color in any bedroom or fun living room. Made with love in a studio in Belmont, MA. Hand cut appliqués, hand embroidered details, and machine stitched to ensure durability. (Cheeky Monkey Home, $168)
Any “Jerry Maguire” fans in the house? I love this 16″ x 16″ (approx.) pillow with the most classic line from the film. 100% cotton, linen weave, hand-pulled screen print with black ink. Envelope enclosure, spot clean only. Listings does not include the pillow insert. You can find an insert at your local craft store. (Michelle Dwight, $32)
A great little reminder. Each inspirational quote pillow cover is made from 100% natural linen fabric that is first washed with organic laundry soaps, then hang-dried. Once dry, each length of fabric is pressed and hand-cut; the pieces are then sewn – each hem with double-stitching, and reinforced around the corners and edges for extra durability. Finally, each pillow is hand-stamped with fabric-safe inks, creating a one of a kind pillow. Each pillow is lovingly made in a workshop, and slight variances in the designs and layouts are treasured signs of each hand-crafted pillow. The pillow covers are machine washable in cool water, air dry flat, and iron (while damp) on medium to high heat. (Casa and Co, $45)
