Handprint pillow keepsake….

OMG—over 200 followers already…thought that goal would take me all year!! Thanks for reading—-I really feel like I have found a voice out here in blogland…thanks yall!

Little hands are so cute—and sweet. I captured my children’s little 10 year old hands recently with this idea to always be able to see how little they were….

You will need….
  • 2 cotton placemats
  • freezer paper
  • a favorite Christmas fabric
  • iron
  • fusible heatbond (no sew)
  • permanent fabric glue
Glue around the perimeter…leave a spot open to be able to stuff the pillow…

I use this GemTac

Trace your kids hands onto freezer paper…

Cut out the hands…
Iron the hands (shiny side to fabric) to the wrong side of your pretty Christmas fabric…

Take the freezer paper off after you have cut out the hands…

Using the Gemtac….glue the back of the hands to the front of the pillow

Allow to dry…

I also placed the age in small tiny jingle bells that I had on hand. Glue and let dry.

I stuffed with some batting…glued the seam shut and secured with pins until dry. How cute huh!!!

    So cute and well done! And when they are teens and their hands are HUGE this pillow will be a sweet reminder. SO sweet.

  6. How fun, what a great idea. We were going to do a table cloth, but this may work better.
