    I love pretty pillows, and would love a chance to win this book! I am all about pillows too, I make mine from recycled felted wool, and needle felt beautiful birds, custom pet portraits, and more over the surface. You can see an example of my pillow work here: http://valsartstudio.blogspot.com/2010/04/wrang…. Thanks for the inspiration by featuring Kajsa Wikman's lovely work.

    Love the combination of fabric paint, embroidery and fabric scraps. Perfect opportunity to use up my stashes of fabric scraps. The whimsical effect of the pillows just brings huge smiles to your face.
