I'm getting real creative with the blog post titles huh? ;) These pregnancy hormones have my brain on a hiatus. The nursery is moving right along these days. In fact, just a few more things to finish off and we will be done. Before we even knew the gender of the baby I knew I wanted to make this pillow and it was super easy.
It was inspired by this pillow that retails for $100. It's an awesome pillow but I just can't justify spending $100 on a pillow for a nursery.
So here we have my take on this pillow. I started with a plain white pillow cover that I just so happened to get for free at IKEA with my coupon I got in the mail. Did any of you guys get one of those? Even if you didn't have a coupon, this pillow retails for $7. Not too bad at all.
Then I just took one of these iron on transfer sheets and printed out the picture I wanted to transfer. I got mine from Target.
and used this free printable elephant I found
Then, I just followed the instructions for the transfer paper. Basically print your image onto the transfer paper, iron it on and you're done. I added some yellow pom pom trim from fabric.com
It's actually the tiniest pom pom trim I've ever seen but oh so cute.
and here we have the finished product
and our new glider that we got from Walmart.com of all places. I love that it looks more like a regular arm chair than a glider.
