DIY Christmas Tree Pillow

DIY: Christmas Tree Pillow

Here's a post from CasaSugar Community member dsmendes from the Crave Worthy Creations group:

While searching for inspiration for a pillow, I stumbled upon an adorable tree pillow. The Woodland Forest in Moss Green and Olive pillow is from Etsy designer allisajacobs and her other designs are just as unique! Since I purchased fabric to make my own pillows, I used this design as my inspiration.

I was making this pillow from scratch, so I purchased a 12"x16" pillow form and the white cotton fabric to make a cover. I pulled out my sewing guide (Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts) and followed the directions to make an envelope-backed pillow cover, so that I can change the cover after different holidays. Then, I picked three print fabrics that look good together and could be used for trees. Walking on the crazy edge of crafting, I just cut out three triangles without using a template and hoped for the best. I didn't worry too much about perfectly straight lines. Because the pillow cover was already sewn together, I chose to glue the trees and stumps directly on the pillow using Dritz Heat Set Glue and an iron. Then, I used the tip of the scissors and frayed the edges. See step-by-step instructions on my blog.
