I am so in the mood for Christmas this year. Maybe it's because of the cute new house we're living in, maybe it's because it's been a long, hot summer and fall - I don't know. I'm just ready for cozying up under quilts and watching Christmas movies and yes - snow.
I was asked to join in at Skip to my Lou to guest post for the Holiday Bake Craft Sew Along. I love this blog hop every year - so many awesome ideas in one place!
I made a version of this scrappy throw pillow a few years ago, but never wrote up a proper tutorial for it. As far as sewing tutorials go, it's VERY simple, but this pillow is unique because it only uses one big piece of linen for the whole pillow & wraps around to make an envelope back out of itself. Pretty spiffy.
Plus it uses some of my favorite red and green fabrics (or scraps of them), and I love that it's so quick to pump out this pillow - you could make a few in a day for a quick gift or last minute housewarming present.
As part of this crafty series, I get to treat you to a SEW Amazing giveaway.
