Christmas Deer Pillow Tutorial

Sometimes fabric is so cute you just don’t want to cut it up!  I love deer and this fabric is one of the cutest deer prints I’ve seen.  I love that it is in a siver/grey color.  I keep my Living Room pretty neutral at Christmas: metallics, grey, cream, white, taupe, and a touch of aqua.  This fabric is perfect!


20″ pillow form

20″ square front fabric, I used Rudolph in Grey by Blend

20″ square for the back fabric

1.5 yards grey crochet lace

Spray n Bond Basting Spray

22″ or longer zipper

20″ pillows are my favorite – so I cut a 20″ square of the Rudolph fabric.  I added a strip of grey crochet lace to give it a little texture.  I always use Spray n Bond basting spray when sewing lace – it keeps it from moving when you sew.

Since the pillow is pretty plain, I added some white pom pom trim.

For the back of the pillow, I cut a 20″ square of the back fabric.  Cut a strip 3″ to add the zipper.  Click HERE for a tutorial on putting a zipper in the back of a pillow.  I used the same lace as a zipper deer pillow 4
