Better Late Than Never

I had started Lola and Bea way back in May with intentions of creating a weekly blog about the journey of starting a company. Well to make a long story short, my computer got a Trojan and since I was not very diligent about backing up my work I lost everything except old photos. So instead of trying to fix my computer I went to work at creating signs, pillows, table runners, and holiday paper crafts to be sold at local businesses.



Once my computer was fixed I went to work creating dozens of pillows like this one. Many of my designs are just words that I print directly on the fabric using either my laser printeror my inkjet printer. Then I  applique the fabric on to my main fabric to form either a patch or a pocket. I add interesting elements like ruffles, ribbons, number plates, or keys to my pillows. The images  for this pillow cam from the Graphics Fairy website here and here.

I hope you come back and visit me again.

Love,
Joanie

Graphics Fairy does rock my little world. I can't believe how many people are viewing my site from her site. Graphics Fairy if you are reading this (I's sure your way too busy for this litlle blogger) I heart you more than black stripe webbing.
