If the Christmas sewing doesn’t get done now, it will never get done!!! I love this pillow and it is super fast and easy to make! The fabrics are from Blend’s Treelicious line – which of course I am in LOVE with! I am so hoping to get a tree skirt made before Christmas gets here. The inspiration came from this print Tis The Season:
I also think this line goes great with last year’s Hip Holiday Line. This pillow will be at home with last year’s pillow:
Here’s how you can make one:
1/2 yard solid white fabric
1/2 yard for backing fabric
Small cuts of fabric for the trees
Tree Pattern, click HERE
20″ or longer zipper
3 yards of decorative trim
Accent trim for the trees
Begin by cutting (2) side strips of Garland Green Tree Fabric 15.5″ x 4.75″
Cut the white fabric 15.5″ x 18.5″
Sew the side strips to the sides of the white fabric using 1/4″ seams, press toward the dark. I pressed this piece to Heat n Bond light weight fusible stabilizer to give it a little more strength – it will turn out fine without it.
Prepare the appliqué by printing the pattern on Heat n Bond Lite EZ print sheets or tracing the pattern on Heat n Bond Lite.
Using Fabric Fuse glue, adhere the trims on the trees. You can also sew them if you want. I was anxious to try out the Fabric Fuse and I really liked how it turned out – it holds great!
Top stitch 1/4″ on both sides of the side seams for some added detail.
Prepare the back. Cut the back fabric 27″ x 15.5″.
Leaving the zipper open, place the pillow top and the pillow back right sides together and sew using a generous 1/4″ seam all the way around. Turn right side out. I know this is an odd size pillow form, but you can just stuff with fiberfill and zip it shut.
