16 Dec 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?
