Roller Derby Pinup Pillows

I have been excited about this blog post for a whole week! Not only is today Valentine's Day, it is the birthday of a friend of mine. She happens to love Roller Derby, and just moved into a new place so I thought a nice Derby themed Birthday/Housewarming present was in order. I'm very excited with the results. I Google image searched for Roller Derby pinup girls and found a calendar full of them to use as a guide for my cutouts.
I also knew I wanted some sort of Damask type pattern as the background and found this one. It's a little funky with some bright pink thrown in.
I foresee myself making many many more of these. It was a fun project and I totally love them!
