Christmas Pillows

Hi kids!

So one of the things that has been keeping me so busy lately is making Christmas pillows. I fell in love with a couple of pillows from Pottery Barn, but I just couldn't bring myself to pay those prices! So I decided to try to make a couple of my favorites.

These were my inspiration pillows.

Here are my versions. I think the poinsettia pillow turned out pretty good, but I'm not thrilled about the wreath pillow. I think I'm going to have another go at it, though. We'll see how much time I have after I finish all my other bazillion projects!

Since I had my sewing machine out, and since making pillows is super easy, I decided to make a few more. Some to keep and some to give as gifts.

How do you like my felt sheepie pillow? Cutest thing ever isn't it? I really had no reason to make it other than it being so cute. I'll save it to put in my future baby's room.

There you have it! Of course, the pillows aren't the only projects that have been keeping me super busy. I have decided to change my entire Christmas decor theme this year which naturally means making new stockings, a tree skirt, etc., etc. Why do I do this to myself?!

More pictures of other projects to come!

Hello! I absolutely love reading your blog and seeing all your fabulous creations! However, I am a completely newbie to sewing but am eager to get started! Do you have any recommendations for a good sewing machine for a beginner?

@Deb--I use the Brother CS6000i. It's relatively cheap for a sewing machine and really easy to use. You can find it on Amazon right now for a great price! Good luck!
