Instagram, the free photo sharing app that lets you transform your images with various filters, has been all over the news lately given Facebook has purchased the popular app for $1 billion dollars.
That said, it's no wonder various creative folks will be coming up with ways to turn those images into keepsakes and products. Stitchtagram is one of the first of those concepts.
With Stitchtagram, your Instagram photos are digitally printed on a 15" square linen-cotton canvas pillow, hand sewn in Washington, DC.
The 15 inch pillows come complete with a soft and fluffy removable insert and a dark navy back with an envelope-style closure.
You can design your own layout using as many or as few images as you wish on their site, but beware, they are very pricey. (note: Those with computer and design skills could simply make their own montage on Photoshop and upload their images to Zazzle, Cafe Press or many other sites that offer pillows for a far lower price - only they won't be bleed images and the colors of the backing fabric are usually limited to black.)
Whose behind Stitchagram?
Stitchtagram is the brainchild of brother/sister team Doug and Rachel Pfeffer.
Doug Pfeffer makes stuff on the internet, including this. Find him on Twitter at @pfeffunit, or see more of his work here.
Rachel is the jeweler behind Rachel Pfeffer Designs. When she's not designing/packing/shipping/carting around pillows and fabric, she's soldering in her DC apartment.
All of Stitchtagram's products are sewn and assembled in Washington, DC and the internet bits have been hand crafted in Boston, MA.
For the next 20 hours (from the time this post was written), discounted coupons for either two or one Stitchtagram pillow are available from Fab with my invite link: http://fab.com/y06r4g
