pillowtalk

More little gifts...I finished the snowman pillows for two of my buds at work, just in time for our Christmas party on Friday! They turned out so cute!

The snowman design is from emblibrary, and you might recognize the charm packs from last week. They're called "S'Mores". I pieced 2 charm squares together for each side of the pillow, and added a backing of pink & white dots.

Next pillow was also for a coworker. It's the cutest Prim design from Heartstrings Embroidery. This one I pieced more "log cabin" style with not totally holiday prints. I was hoping the little pillows could stay "out" for the winter season and not just through the holidays.


I made 5 more tissue covers for everyone too. Somehow I only photo'd 4 though. Don't ask me how! :D


And for Lu's Sunday School teacher (who is getting the pretty shabby rose wristlet from last month) I stitched out this beautiful nativity lace ornament. So pretty! It was a freebie (maybe last year?) at Advanced Embroidery, but is now for purchase. It's beautiful!! I tied this on the package bow.


Now I'm off to do some wrapping! I may have one or two little gifts to share later!

FOUR MORE DAYS!!!

  2. That lace ornament is gorgeous. With all the embroidery I do, I've never made a lace ornament. What are your best tips?

  5. Thanks everyone!

    Yup Kat, I stuffed. They're not as "lumpy" as they appear in my indoor photo though, I think it's just shadows from the overhead light (& no flash). They were pretty smooth & just squishy enough.
