One Holiday Pillow!

Click HERE for the Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway post.

I designed a series of holiday pillows and have been working on them.  However, as so often happens this time of year, life keeps getting in the way of sewing.  Anyway, this “Gather” pillow is one I have managed to complete. 

I am a huge fan of words on fabric and quilts so I wanted to include some words on my holiday pillows.  As well-loved as words like “joy” and “hope” are, I was looking for something different.  Not long ago, I was in Panera with one of my friends when she needed to take a call from work.  While I was waiting for her to finish her call, I noticed a large advertising poster in the restaurant.  It included lots of words describing yummy food and drink.  I got a few ideas from there and then did some more brainstorming and came up with a few words I could use.  In addition to gather and glow (pillow coming soon :)), the list was bliss, share, magic, warm, glisten, glitter and glee.  I thought the alliteration of four pillows with glow, glisten, glitter and glee would be fun if you like that kind of thing.

I hope to be able to get a couple more pillows finished this weekend.  How is your holiday sewing going?

    That is so much fun! I love words on fabric. I think I might copy yours, but I want to do it for every day, not the holidays. Looks like I have a spring project. Thanks for sharing the great idea!

    This is a lovely cushion and I'm looking forward to seeing the other designs – will you be changing the fonts?

    This is great. And my favourite sentiment when it comes to the holiday!

    I'd love to comment on this post…although I'm really here for the giveaway…so I'll scroll down after I post this. 🙂

    I LOVE your Gather pillow!! We have a plaque over our fireplace that says Gather Together, and I love it. So I'm into words on things, too. You seem very creative and talented. Thanks for sharing your awesome pillow.
