While researching for Saturday's post, I stumbled upon an adorable tree pillow on ShelterPop. The Woodland Forest in Moss Green and Olive pillow is from Etsy designer allisajacobs and her other designs are just as unique! Since fabric has been purchased to make my own pillows, I used this design as my inspiration.
I was making this pillow from scratch so I purchased a 12"x16" pillow form and the white cotton fabric to make a cover. I pulled out my sewing guide - Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts - and followed the directions to make an envelope-backed pillow cover so that I can change the cover after different holidays. It was fairly easy!
Then I picked three print fabrics that look good together and could be used for 'trees'. Walking on the crazy edge of crafting, I just cut out three triangles without using a template and hoped for the best. I didn't worry too much about perfectly straight lines.
Because the pillow cover was already sewn together, I chose to glue the trees and stumps directly on the pillow using Dritz Heat Set Glue and an iron. Then I used the tip of the scissors and frayed the edges of the trees.
