Coral Pillows

Hello again!  I've been working on some "repeat" projects lately, so no new tutorials.  But, I wanted to show you these two pillows I made the other day.  I made these using the same iron-on transfer technique as with this pillow

I found the black coral graphic at the Graphic Fairy's blog (it also came in a red/coral color).  The pretty blue coral, for the life of me, I cannot remember where I got the graphic from.  If anyone knows, please contact me so I can give proper credit.  I am slowly working on giving my master bedroom some updates, so I'm thinking the blue coral would look perfect in there.  And I might make a little friend for the black coral so it doesn't get lonely.  Here are a few more pictures.

As much as I love making gifts for other people, it's nice to sometimes make crafty things for myself too.  Loving these!
Thanks for looking!

    1. Sorry to bother you so long after this post but I just found it today. Like you on your other post re: iron ons ..I wanted to do vintage French images from Graphics Fairy. I used Avery transfer paper in the light version yours looked like 3272 mine is 3275. When it printed the image from the graphics fairy site to my transfer paper (my background of the image was black . with white lettering) .instead of looking true black on the transfer paper it was a horrible dark bluey green not what I wanted. I've spent most of today talking to Canon (my printer supplier) and Avery to try and find out why it would not print true black. On your French chocolate one did your transfer come out black. I'm so frustrated . When I printed it on plain computer paper it came out black only when I tried on the expensive transfer paper did it come out the wrong colour. Any input you could kindly give me would be much appreciated. I don't have a profile so I will just sign as Anonymous
