Thanks! I try to help find things for fellow HT'rs. I got most of my stuff from ebay. It can be easier. Sometimes google searches give too much vague information. A good example was recently when I searched for Ohm speakers (the brand, not the impedance). They had a pair of Ohm Model C speakers on Craigslist in Boston and for the life of me I was unable to find much on google because it was coming up with ohm (impedance). If I did Ohm Model C with quotes, I got a few, but I imagine there was more info online about them.

Happy New Year!

Thanks! I never thought to look on ebay. I am going to also check with a local embroidery store in the next week or so if they can take a picture and sew it on any fabric.
This might border on a craft (OK, it IS a craft), but you can buy velvet fabric and use this http://www.fabrics.net/etch.asp

to "burn out" a theater design - ooohh! How Custom!

then build your pillows. I have heard of using stamps and ironing them to the pile for burnout http://www.hotpotatoes.com/velvet.asp , but this looks a whole lot easier.

Maybe you could even buy ready-made pillows, then burn out your design...

While cleaning my office (wifes orders) I stumbled across some iron on transfers that you can run through a printer to get your image printed on it, then just iron it on your t-shirts. I'm going to try this weekend on some fabric samples with some home theatre like images and if it turns out, I'll get my wife to make pillows out of it. I'll post back the results.

Here are some pics I got right in powerpoint clipart, I've printed this out and am going to try them out on some fabric.

I bought some movie strip fabric at a Hancock Fabrics. My son is in film school and I thought it would make a great quilt. They had it in black and white and in colors. Go to hancockfabrics website. Scroll down to the bottom and click on St. Jude contest. Scroll to the bottom of that page and click 2006 Quilt of Dreams St. Jude Collection. On the bottom of the page is the black and white filmstrip fabric and on the second page is the color.
