face time

November 21, 2011

For a memorable gift, put your pet’s face on a pillow.

Using eco-friendly felt, University of Georgia law school grad Elizabeth Newton hand-sews pillows in the likeness of your favorite pet.

With photos of your pet, the Atlanta native makes a sketch on paper and fabric. Then she cuts the colorful fabric and arranges the pieces to capture your pet’s personality and physical characteristics. That’s the fun part, she says.

Newton adds a back to the portrait pillow and stuffs it with poly fill.

Pillows run about $50 for in-stock designs. Custom designs are $65 and up.
