I had hoped to have that Felt Garland Pillow tutorial for you today to share along with this new Christmas Pillow, but I'm still working on it. Monday, I promise!!
Keeping with my current love of all things polka dots, I made this new Christmas pillow. The center fabric is Michael Miller's Tiny Trees that I picked up last year, the green polka dot is a Mini Dots by Riley Blake, and the brown polka dot is one most likely stashed from Joann's. If I am going to traditional Christmas red and green, I love adding in a brown!
For this pillow, I pieced the top, adding a red pre-made piping in between the tree print and the green polka dots. It's a simple thing to add and I really like the look of it! Next, I cut out a piece of muslin and batting just slightly large than the pillow top, pinned the three together, and then quilted the center using simple straight lines. Easy!
Here's a good look at that red piping. If any of you would like a tutorial for this one, I'd be happy to put a quick one together. Just say the word!
That makes three Christmas pillows now! Four, once I finish that tutorial. I've decided to add these to my shop, but if any of these pillows happen to inspire you or if you would even like to make the exact same one(s), by all means -- please do!
For more Christmas-y goodness, be sure to stop back tomorrow for a new really BIG giveaway -- a chance to win Betz White's new workshop, Fab Felt Holiday Crafts, sponsored by Craftsy. Along with a large stack of wool blend felt, sponsored by me! :)
