I am so not ready for Christmas. I keep telling myself I still have time to get things done..but I am quickly realizing it will be here before I know it and I better start sewing.
One of my blogger friends, Brenda from Shabby cats and Roses, makes the most beautiful pillows! I was inspired by her to make myself a sweet Christmas pillow. You can find Brenda's pillows and stockings here. She does such beautiful work at such reasonable prices.
Being someone who loves to create something myself I pulled out the sewing machine and made this sweet pink Santa pillow.
I love a pink Santa--what is sweeter than that? With pink roses--this image was like Christmas heaven to me. How sweet. Makes me want to sing Christmas carols and have snow falling outside.
To make this pillow I printed out the image in reverse on this paper I found on clearance at Walmart for 7 sheets for .99 cents. I have used these iron on's before and I really like them. I thought Santa looked perfect with this Simply Shabby Sheet I got at Goodwill for $4.99. I had pillows forms too so I was able to make this all with stuff I had. That made this even better because my car has been giving me grief lately. It has 84,000 miles on it and it starting to need some work. Ugh. So any fun money I might have had is being used on the car. :( Oh well. Thankfully I have a stash of crafting supplies!
I haven't done any Christmas decorating yet. I still think it is early..though I do love seeing what all you bloggers are doing. I do a real tree so I have wait to get that. Also, I always say I don't want Christmas decorations out so long that I have to dust them!
Since Christmas is the season of giving..I know someone quite well whose house this pillow would look so cute in..and so now I am working on making another one.
Yes Janae, it is for you :)..I hope you love it, and Merry Early Christmas!
I think Phoebe is hoping Santa will get her something really awesome for Christmas. She has been a good girl, for the most part. :)
So who all is decorating already..and if not...when do you start?
Thanks so much for visiting..and enjoy the season!
