Description

12/14/13 Found this pattern on Starlight.com's blog and instantly fell in love. What a great stash buster for your 2 1/2" left over strips. And of course so much fun to play with fabric combinations. I still need to add an outer border so I can turn this into a 16" pillow cover. Maybe I'll do some hand stitching on the last border or outline the tree? Why did Christmas creep up on me so fast!

Ended up doing a quick backing (I think it's called a French envelope?) because I wasn't up to figuring out how to do a zipper tonight. Next one I'll use Caribousmom's zipper tutorial.

Forgot to attach the tutorial in case you want to get an early start on next year's Christmas projects!

Caribousmom

It's great, Terry! Love it!

Terryt1955

Thanks +Readerow, True and Caribousmom ! I'm hoping to get it done this weekend but I've been busy holding the babies. It's the most wonderful time of the year!

True

Terryt1955 If someone was handing me a baby to hold I would just sit back and enjoy!!!

Terryt1955

I'm going over to their house tonight so they can go Christmas shopping so I'll give him a big squeeze for you and send it your way....

HawkFan

Love the fabrics you chose. Give him a squeeze for me too!!

Quilt455

Love it. got to make one of these.

Terryt1955

HawkFan True I gave him a bath which he promptly pooped in! But then we got to snuggle on the couch and we both fell asleep.Thank goodness Jim came to watch Emmett or I would be fired!

Terryt1955

Quilt455 You have to make one! It is such a fun pattern!

Joke

I think I'm going to have to make one or two or three of these to match my Xmas quilt, with all the left over 2.5" strips I have!!

Terryt1955

Joke Yes you should especially since you have 2.5" strips left over! All you need to do is cut some 2.5" background strips and you're home free!

Skynme

This looks great! What a cute little pillow, Love it!

True

Terryt1955 Thanks for sending some baby cuddles this way! Love bath story...and love backing and this pillow

Quilt455

Terryt1955 Yup, I think I am going to do just that. New machine will be here Tuesday so this may be my first project on it.

Caribousmom

So great, Terry! Love the back fabric :)

Terryt1955

Skynme Thanks! It sure makes the couch it's on look happy. I'm pleased with the polka dot border the most!

Terryt1955

Quilt455 A new machine on Tuesday....how exciting! Sounds to me like you better take Wed off from work and make this pillow. Didn't I just hear you sneezing?

Terryt1955

Caribousmom True Thanks! Believe it or not the backing fabric I got from Joann's last year.. When I felt how soft it was I figured it would be good as fillers."Next pillow" I will piece the back when I have more time.

Caribousmom

Terryt1955 Yeah - you better start piecing the backs, Terry - we're keeping track of what a slacker you are :) this is where the sarcasm font is needed, by the way

Mymble

Love it- and the backing fabric is delightful:)

Terryt1955

Caribousmom snicker, snicker!

Terryt1955

Mymble Carolmarie Thanks guys!

beadqueene

so pretty! I love the fabrics!

Terryt1955

beadqueene Thanks!! I just love all the great Christmas fabric out there.

Conniharns

That pillow is just too cute Terry! Love those fabrics and those dots....love dots. Love to eat Dots too!! Movie candy a must!!

Terryt1955

Conniharns Maybe that's why I like Polka dots so much! It's a throwback to the dots candy. That explains a lot. Glad you thought it was cute! Every morning when I go out to the family room to get ready for work it instantly cheers me up.

Sewbusy64

I love this pillow....great job and awesome cute fabrics!

Terryt1955

Sewbusy64 Thanks! I went and linked up to the tutorial in case you want to make one....

Mary

Oh my...I'm in love! The border is so fun and the back fabric is wonderful...I would love to browse in your stash pile.

Terryt1955

Mary LOL! I will take that as a supreme compliment! I am always so envious of others stashes.

Sewbusy64
