    I stumbled across some pink and brown fabric this afternoon and set out to turn it into a picture pillow for the nursery of a friend's baby. After stumbling over my basket of stabilizers while trying to embroider her name onto a ribbon I decided it was time to do something about those stabilizers. Here's what came of it:

    A nice little holder for my stabilizers, fusible webbings and even a pouch for vinyl that can hang over my sewing room door.

    One of the pouches put to use.

    And, once my sewing room was cleared of stabilizer clutter, I came up with my original project.

    A picture pillow.

    Sure! It's called a picture pillow because the cener block has a vinyl cover so the baby's picture can be inserted there. It's meant as a decor item only and should go really nicely in the nursery. :-)

    You're not the only fuzzy one, I was thinking the same thing, except it's the heat on this side of the world that's fuzzing my brain :?

    Great idea for the stabilizers :thumbup:

    I love the stabilizer idea. I'll have to make one for my studio since my rolls are a jumble in a basket, too. Also, the picture pillow is cute.

    That is a great idea. I am forever missplacing a roll of something and buying more. I am making one today.
