I think by now everyone already guessed the theme we are going for our baby Peanut’s nursery =] CIRCUS! and one of the elements I really wanted to integrate are the entry tickets (the vintage ones) – even tho the nursery will be very modern I just really wanted to have a ticket, and what better way than making a pillow!
Since the size I decided to make is very custom, I made the pillow and the pillow cover. For the letters I used the font Corben by Vernon Adams from the Google Webfont directory. A free font that had just the look I was going for.
Because I wanted the numbers on the side to really mean something and not to be just random ticket numbers, I decided to use my due date, even tho the probability of having our baby that day is very small, it still means so much to us, after all we’ve been really looking forward to THAT day, so at least I will be able to remember when it was, if peanut’s birth day is some other day =] and just in case you are wondering – I made the pillow in the Spanish date order (day, month, year) because that’s still the way I write dates down.
And as usual I wanted to share how I made my pillow and the template so you can also make your own, the file is set with the size I used but you can always make it bigger or smaller
