I then cut my pillow pieces to make a pillow, ironed them well and then adhered the iron-ons BEFORE sewing my pillow together.

Halloween Pillow - DIY Envelope Pillow

    Mary Beth... in comparison to your Boo-lerina... the Boo ghost is so ordinary. You truly made her extraordinary and of course with a little bit of "crinoline." 😉 Great job. I'd love to experiment with a Circuit. My fingers are crossed for a win. 😉

    1. Mary Beth says:

      Thank you, Diane, and I'll cross my fingers, too! You would do amazing things with one, I'm sure. <3
