2 Quick and Simple Christmas Pillows

2 Quick and Simple Christmas Pillows

Quick and simple is sometimes what I’m all about.  I like to have a few things around the house that are Holiday related…but don’t really want to spend a whole lot of time on them.

These Christmas Pillows are all about that.  Simple and Quick.  But cute!

Using a few other tutorials from around here…they are perfect for quickly sewing up either for yourself or for a quick gift.

These pillows are actually going off to a trade soon….I will be getting two new ones and totally excited to see what they are!

Materials Needed:

fusible fleece

pillow form- this can be sized to your favorite pillow form

christmas fabric- a few fat eights or scraps to get a variety.  One pillow uses 5″X5″ squares

HeatnBond Lite for applique

Christmas Pillow Tutorial first pillow:  (the one with the tree)

1)  Cut your fusible fleece to the size that you’d like your pillow to be.  mine were 16″ square so I used a 17″ square piece and trimmed after I was finished

2)  Follow these quilt as you go instructions to finish your pillow top– I did some super simple quilting, only 1/4″ straight lines on either side of each seam.  Using red thread made it pop and give the pillow a little bit more interest.

3)  Trim the edges to the size you’d like

4)  Cut a tree shape out of green and a trunk out of brown.  Fuse, glue or pin in place and raw edge applique to secure

Christmas Pillow Tutorial second pillow: (Disappearing 9 patch Double Twist)

1)  Cut your fusible fleece to the size that you’d like your pillow to be.  mine were 16″ square so I used a 17″ square piece and trimmed after I was finished

2)  Follow these instructions to make your disappearing 9 patch Double Twist  Quilt Block— Because the block gives you a few options, you can audition them before deciding the layout.  This is what I love about these disappearing quilt blocks!

3)  Sew fabric strips around the quilt block to make it a bit bigger — you can choose the width of the strips.
