Tis the Season, Day 10: Noel pillow.

Welcome to Day 10 of Tis the Season! How about a pillow tutorial today?

First you'll need some fabric for the cover of your pillow.
And some fabric for your word.
pompoms or jingle bells, whatever you want to use to embellish the corners.
heat and bond.
and a sewing machine.

Take some heat and bond and iron it onto the fabric you've picked for your word. Once on write out you word,make sure it's backwards, then cut it out.

Determine the size of your pillow and cut a piece for the front. Once cut peel the backing of the heat and bond off of your word and place onto the pillow front piece. Iron on.

Cut 2 pieces for the back both 2/3 the size of the front piece. They will overlap to form an envelope closure. If you want you can sew the edges so they won't fray, I didn't because I'm lazy.

Cut some pom poms and pin sandwiched in the corners. Sew everything together.

Fill with your insert and enjoy!

Hope you enjoyed!
