I made this pillow for a christmas gift for a family member . Those are my grandparents in the middle . I was surprzied how well the photo came out when I printed it on cotton . It was just a printed copy on paper. Then I printed the saying and Mother and Father out on a very light fabric that was backed by paper . I cant remember right off hand what it was . But I was pleased how well it all worked together . And the pillow was loved .
