A hand made sorority pillow makes a great little sister gift!
What are your favorite colors? My favorite colors are pink and green together. That's why I love sewing Delta's with Zeta's and little turtles on pillows, because the colors are so bright and motivating. Same goes for making Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority gifts. The pink and green together just makes it beautiful, no matter what you are making.
I made this little Delta Zeta pillow with some leftover fabric that I already had in my fabric basket. The pink and white striped canvas brightens up what ever I make out of it. The green fabric is a knit, soft like tee shirt material.
I used the Greek Letter patterns for Delta and Zeta, but taped the 2 patterns together, so that the two letters could be joined as one. I like that because it is symbolic of sisterhood to be connected or joined to each other as sisters. I use stitch witchery as a binding agent to iron the letters onto the back fabric. Once the letters are stuck on the fabric, then using the zig zag stitch on my sewing machine, I stitched all the way around the Greek Letters (Delta Zeta).
Then I got out my acrylic paints and painted a simple turtle crawling up the Delta. The fun part is adding embellishment to the turtle shell. Every turtle comes out different, and that is what makes handmade gifts so unique...they are one of a kind.
The front and the back of the pillow are sewn together except for a hole left to put in stuffing. After stuffing, the opening is closed with hand sewing.
The point is to MAKE SOMETHING YOURSELF. Put yourself into making a gift and the recipient is sure to appreciate your efforts. Sorority gifts are treasures when made special by hand.

Willard Sorority Ducky Pillow
This fabric would be perfect for the back side of a Delta Gamma pillow. On the front, use a white background and paint or appliqué your yellow or blue letters along with an ANCHOR for great looking pillow. A simple To set the pillow off, use a ruffle at the joining seam, or cording for a more tailored look.
I wish sorority fabric designs like this one were not so hard to find. This beautiful fabric that is perfect for a dreamy Delta Gamma pillow is for sale today, but may not be here tomorrow. There is a link below if it is still available on eBay.

Many of you have commented on the Greek letter shaped pillows that I posted about previously. I have been trying to find more information about them and now I can tell you.
They had been offered on eBay for a while and then I could not find them again. After searching over a period of time, I finally connected to the lady that makes these pillows by order and discovered that she has an eBay shop, is a top rated seller, and is willing to make custom ordered Greek pillows like these if you would like to order one.
Her name is Cindy and this is her story:
My daughter, Stefanie is a Phi Mu and graduated from the University of Oklahoma at Norman in 2005. When she went in 2000, we started doing the pillows as gifts to her sorority sisters, for Big/Little, Graduation, etc. Everyone loved them and soon we were making them for friends of hers and for her sisters that were in other sororities too.
We have an Ebay store that we started about 4 1/2 years ago. We introduced various sorority themed gift items and they were a hit including the pillows and beaded bracelets, necklaces, ornaments, tote bags to name just a few things.
We can do most any Greek Letter or Initial Pillow set. We maintain a large amount of different colors and patterns of fabrics with ribbons, buttons & Bling! embellishments for the pillows.
We also do beaded bracelets & necklaces with sorority letters or sorority mascot charms. We do sorority marker boards. Close to Christmas, we do sorority themed ornaments.
We do sorority name tote bags. We do Sorority themed free standing Spirit Signs or magnetic ones. We do custom order Zebra Print Frames. The frames are clear acrylic and we do a Zebra Print matted border insert for the frames. We can make the Zebra Animal Print border with any sorority name, words like Big Sis, Little Sis, Sisters Forever, etc. or a person's name. These are cute items that are always appreciated as gifts. Smiles, Cindi
Stefi's Corner Stones & Gifts Shoppe -
The shop does not always have the pillows listed, but you can contact Cindi through the eBay messages and ask for one to be made for your Greek letters.
