Read Between the Lines – An Inspirational Pillow


ReadBetweenTheLines.10001

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.

    That is so cute!.. I want to make one too!. A good way to add color to a room and use up some scraps. I see two, in fall colors, that say “GIVE” THANKS”., for the season and my green and beige living room.
