My sister's amazing cross-stitch pieces have started to pile up and I knew the kids would be excited if I finally made something out of them. I decided to get them all done in one day and all that assembly line sewing kind of wore me out. But it was worth it and has even resulted in my stubborn 2 year-old being excited to go to bed to sleep with her new pillows.
First, I completed the Frozen pillow, using the perfect snowflake fabric from a LQS.
The next two pillows were completed with the fun, but usually hard-to-use, rainbow fabrics from my stash:
I used pieces of leftover quilt bindings to bind the pillows and went the extra mile by making zippered backs for all of the pillows. (I am finding that the envelope backings for previous pillows I have made aren't too hardy, especially with frequent use by children).
I can't wait to show off what my sister has been stitching me as a "late" birthday present! Thanks for reading. Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilt's Finish it up Friday.
