I saw some pillows like this at the Country Living Festival and wanted to make one for myself. I bought a ready made pillow form from Hobby Lobby, yarn and embroidery thread. That is all you need to make this cute christmas pillow.
You can of course buy fabric and make a pillow after you attach your yarn so you can make sure it’s centered.First I laid out the letters on the pillow and pinned them.
Then I took 3 strands of embroidery thread in the same color and started tacking it down. At the start and finish I did about 5 loops in the same place to keep the yarn from unraveling. I tried to stay at consistent intervals. Every 3rd or 4th stitch I would snag a small bit of the yarn into the thread just to make sure it stays in place.
I sewed around the words and then stuffed the pillow with a pillow insert. This project only took me one evening project while watching a Christmas Movie. It was so simple and I think it came out really cute!
