Lady Guadalupe Pillows

I have recently become obsessed with the Virgin Mary and/or Lady Guadalupe.  Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I am currently enrolled in RCIA classes to become Catholic.  My fianc√© is Catholic, and I am following suite with his denomination. 

I was browsing around Joann’s Fabric and I came across some semi decent Virgin Mary fabric … now that I have furthered my search, I don’t think there is ANY fabulous Mary fabric out there; or at least, nothing that I like … So, I improvised and cut around the actual Mary image.  I used fusible webbing and sewed scrap pieces of fabric together to make a few pillows.  I would have to say that they turned out pretty fabulous!  I gave two of them away and kept one for our house.  It fit perfectly on our vintage orange chair. 

While I was whackin’ and stackin’ on the Mary pillows, I had the idea to add a Mary to a simple tshirt that I purchased at Joann’s Fabrics.  I am always wearing these solid tshirts around the house … you just can’t beat it for about $3 each.  Sometimes I jazz em up … sometimes I don’t.
