Every once in a while, I will get a crafty surge and I have to succumb to it. Yesterday’s was Christmas pillows. SaSa came over and I was setting up Christmas decorations and telling her how I thought I might make some Christmas pillows to match the tree skirt and she spotted my table runner and matching cloth napkins I had yet to put in their home. She told me to make that into a pillow.. I had two- I could make a pillow! I told her that if I used a different fabric for the back that I could make two! I also had the perfect cream to match the stripe. When I went to my fabric tote, I found a bunch of fabric that I could use in my pillow making. I decided to try to do and put together what I could so I could wait on going to Hobby Lobby just in case there was something else I ran across needing.
Excuse the Christmas tree box in the floor…
This was the cloth napkin!
back of it.
This is my tree skirt. I wanted the pillows to match.
I made the back out of some red corduroy that I used for Addison’s Christmas pants last year.. I obviously bought entirely too much! The light green was left over from the iPhone pillows I made a few months ago. The dark green was felt. The red dots were felt. It would have been easier to use felt for all
the stripes but I had that fabric, so I used it.
This was an after thought pillow.. I had left over red fabric and I thought I would make one to match the stockings.
These are our stockings..
This one was REALLY an after thought. I had left over poly fill, so I decided to use scraps of fabric to make another pillow.
Want to know what these SIX pillows cost me? $20!!! Since I had the red felt, and all the fabric all I needed was green thread, dark green felt, and poly fill. Which I did poly fill instead of pillow inserts since it was cheaper and actually easier to work with.
I’d say that’s a Christmas deal!
