Make kids a pillow of themselves. You can put any fabric through an inkjet printer by ironing it to freezer paper. Make sure to first wash it to remove any sizing. Or you can buy the fabric that's made for printing. It comes in 8x11 inch squares or in long banner rolls at any fabric or craft store. They sell silk as well as cotton. You simply print their pictures on to the fabric with your inkjet printer, then cut and sew all around their faces or you can sew smaller pictures along with other fabrics into a quilted throw pillow. You could even make totes with their pictures (or even pictures of their pets) printed on them. What a fun gift!

Thanks for this awesome tip. I had no idea fabric could go through the printer. I had the idea and know all about freezer paper techniques, but this one slipped. Thanks a ton, I will be using this for my lampshade im making ;)!
Wow, this is amazing! I can't wait to try this. I certainly didn't know this handy dandy trick, but now that I do, watch out. :) Thanks so much!
