I’ve been out of the country for a couple of weeks, and just before I left, I crafted this pillow as part of the Threadbias Pretty in Patchwork Holidays Sew-a-long. The pillow in the book uses the words “Ho Ho Ho,” but because they gave an alphabet chart, I could chose any word I wanted. I decided to keep my pillow bright and happy and sew the word CREATE as an inspirational message in my sewing room.
This is a super easy pillow to make (and fun to stitch too). I used scraps from my scrap bin and a large piece of Kona Raffia for the flanges and back.
Buttonholes were a new skill for me to master, so I practiced a bit before doing them on the pillow…and it was pretty easy!
Finding buttons I liked proved to be a harder task…and so I eventually purchased a button making kit from Joanne’s and made my own covered buttons.
I love this one…and it looks great in the sewing room!
