Description

I made this pillow as part of the Holiday Lane Pillow Blog hop. It involved piecing, applique, embroidery, and quilting.
 
I had a lot of fun making it. 

Of course, as usual I strayed from the pattern to make it my own.

Being from a very small town, my access to supplies is limited unless I make an hour's drive or order online. The pattern called for wool felt,,,no where to be found here. I tried regular crafting felt, but didn't like the look,,so I hit my stash & found some fur trim for stockings and used it for the snow on the roofs.

The sky fabric was originally black,,,but I knew I had this spacey night sky fabric,,and dug till I found it.

This pillow is huge. I didn't realize how big it was till I started cutting out the pieces. Not sure where it'll find a home!
