I promised you a sewing project today, and so it will be. But first I can't believe I'm almost half way through my month!!! I'm having so much fun. Today I'll have to finish a few tutorials, I'm going away for school tomorrow morning - (and, no, my house won't be empty - there are still people living in it) and today is father's day in Norway, so after church we're going to see my father.
Today I want to show you how to make a Christmas pillow, but it is so easy to to this as an every day of the year pillow - and you can even use this technique for anything else as well.
fabric enough for your pillow
cookie cutters of your choice
place the pillow on the fabric, cut the fabric around the pillow, making it overlap a little in the back - 2-3 inches overlap.
Place the cookie cutters where you want them, use your fabric marker to draw the edges inside them. fill in with the markers.
I just wrote Noel by hand.
Sew the side seams of the pillowcase - making sure the overlap is the same as when you cut the fabric. Turn around and place the pillow inside. I used the edges of the fabric as my overlap edge - if you don't, you'll have to make a little hem ate the edges here.
And since my au pair had put a pillow case for the bedroom on a pillow in the living-room- the Christmas pillow is already in it's place.
Happy Sunday - tomorrow there will be something for your hallway.
