State Pillow

Recently I was looking through my HGTV magazine and came across a state pillow for my home state of Michigan. I immediately thought, "$75... who are they kidding!?" OK, for $60 you can just get the cover. Really? Ridiculous! Just do a little applique and add some machine embroidery and you are done! Looking for states designs? These State Coloring Pages are a perfect place to start.

I read some of the reviews on Red Envelope and one poster made a great recommendation. These pillows look great with states with distinct shapes, but square shaped states need a little help - possibly with the state name embroidered over the top. 

If you have an embroidery machine, check out the state shapes at Embroidery Library! Love 'em!

What do you think?

UPDATE: Here's my finished Michigan pillow.
