GRANDPARENT SUBWAY SIGN PILLOW

A few days ago I received a custom order for a Subway Sign Pillow.  

Normally, these pillows bear the name of a favorite city.  Subway Signs used for home decor are pretty popular right now, especially when they're personalized to fit your town or favorite spot.
But this was a request for a pillow with a different twist - a Subway Sign Pillow with a phrase that proclaims a very happy occasion - the birth of a new grandchild! 
  I've made 5 pillows with the striped linen strip, so that fabric is no longer available, but this one has a lovely turquoise/brown upholstery strip and I love the way it turned out.  The color and texture is a great contrast to the nubby, natural open weave of burlap.
 This was so fun to figure out and make, especially knowing the joy that is coming to this family any day now!

Custom orders can be taken at my Etsy shop:  Gillyflower Cottage.
