Liz makes a camera pillow

Today I made a camera shaped pillow! Check it out!




I sewed it with high-quality polyester fiber felt made from 100% post-consumer recycled bottles. Yay for saving the environment!




It's dimensions are 12" by 9" by 2".



I both machine sewed and hand sewed the pillow. 


It's listed in my etsy shop, EssentialHandmades. Check it out! Just kidding, I already sold it. But I am making more already!



Do you think I should post a tutorial? Let me know! I would like to, but I usually don't get many views on my tutorials. Would you make one?



Love, Liz

(Unrelated: I've been wanting to have some guest posts on my blog. Guest posts are the bee's knees because they help both me and you! If you would like to guest post or if you would like me to guest post on your blog, let me know.)

  1. This is super cute! I'm not sure I would personally need a tutorial, because I like to take ideas and make them my own, but I'm sure other people who may not be as familiar with crafts would benefit from one! Pillow making is really fun!

    I'd be interested in guest posting, but I'm pretty new to the blog world. We should be in contact though! :)

    1. Cool! Thanks for stopping by. I'm also super fresh to the blogging world as well. But I hope to grow semi-quickly and I think guest blogging will help us get there. Have a nice day!

  5. Haha I love it. You should just keep the top open and sew a zipper onto that one side so that it becomes a little cosmetic bag.

    I'm also new to blogging, so I'm really impressed with yours because I know how much work goes into it! Check out my blog! http://www.luciablogs.com

    Thanks!

    3. Just an update: I went to JoAnn's today (the craft store) and they had the same felt. I bought a HUGE pack for four dollars! And I had a 50% off coupon for one any priced item, so it was only two dollars! It was rad.

  11. Yes, technology is sometimes more advantageous but the doodling part is just to fun! So I keep it simple and classic ^^ But it would an amazing idea to make a doodle agenda app! xD I guess it would be a lot of hype around it.
    The pillow is incredible! :o You did it yourself. All my thumbs up for you. I immediately had to click the follow button :D

    Have a nice day,
