Hugs and Kisses for my Sister

I never close an email or a text to my sister, Paula, without inserting an “x” and “o” – it is my way of telling her I love her. So it was a no brainer to gift her this pillow I made as part of the Threadbias Pillow Pop Sew Along. The pattern is called X’s and O’s in the Pillow Pop book, but I’ve renamed it Hugs and Kisses.

I used some fabric from the amazing Art Gallery collection Florescence, along with a pink oval elements by Pat Bravo and some Candlelight solid by Cotton Couture – that makes for an incredibly soft pillow which takes a 16″ insert.

I learned a new skill for this one – machine appliqueing a circle!

The pillow includes flanges and pretty covered buttons.

The back of the pillow is sewn with two pieces of fabric to make it substantial…and I quilted a giant “X” on it.

I hope when my sister looks at this pillow, she knows just how special she is to me…and that it gives her a jolt of good feeling on a cold winter morning!

    That’s great! The little details really make it pop.

    I’m sure your sister will think of your love every time she looks at that beautiful pillow.

    So pretty and heartfelt Wendy. I’d cherish it. (Hope your sister is doing well).
