Last summer/fall I was in the mood to make homemade gifts for the holidays. I was also in a sewing mood, so naturally that’s mainly what I did. I love all the pillows I see on Pinterest. These were some of my favorites and ones that I could actually attempt to mimic.

I’d recommend heavy duty stitching the leaves on. Mine hasn’t weathered use well. Which is sad since it was a gift.
I also made a couple of Christmas pillows. The first one, I failed in taking a pic before giving it away. It was a red felt poinsettia on a white and gold patterned Christmas print. The second, was slightly based on this one from Pinterest:

And finally, this one isn’t sewing (some of you sighed with relief I’m sure). K’s grandma saw this pic online and requested a set from my girls’ footprints.
I opted not to use canvas as I could see the disaster and multiple tries it would probably take with my kiddos, especially the 18 month old! So I used cardstock and put them in frames. And it did take at least two attempts for each kid.
