return on creativity: holiday pillows no. 3



Here's the final installment of my holiday pillow series.  Check out the links below for more holiday pillows.




This pillow is red corduroy.  The snowflakes are felt cut outs that I bought at Michaels.  The cut outs are adhesive and I just stuck them on the pillow (easy).  So far they are still very much stuck on after two years.


This is a small pillow that serves two purposes.  The pillow is muslin with red fringe.  I stamped "naughty" on one side and "nice" on the other.  


I sewed jingle bells onto this red velvet pillow.  This slippery fabric was hard to sew.  I noticed this year that I am missing a jingle bell and I will have to do a repair.


I appliqued a tree onto this pillow and stitched on pearl bead "ornaments".  I love the crumpled fabric for this pillow.  The fabric was a smallish remnant making a petite pillow.

Thanks for reading and I hope I have inspired you to make an eclectic group of holiday pillows for yourself.

Adorable! That snowflake one would go perfectly with our Christmas decorations, but my boys would love to get their hands on the jingle bell pillow! So fun!

Oh, gosh, I'm not sure which one I like the best. They are all so fabulous. The snowflake pillow definitely caught my eye. Such a cute idea!

You've made some pretty nice pillows. I really like them all but am kind of partial to the snowflake one. I like snowflakes for the holidays. But I like the bells, and then there's the tree, like the one with nice on it. Guess I can't pick a favorite. Please share this over at Sunday's Best party going on now. Sharing you supranational pillows might help someone who been looking for inspiration. Sure Hope so!
