Naughty or Nice {Holiday Pillow #2}

Yes...I know the day is almost over and I haven't shown you my lovely "Naughty or Nice" pillows! Sorry! Long day! ya go!

I was inspired by Jen from Tatertots and Jello. She made these lovely Trick or Treat Pillows around Halloween. She used heat transfer material and her craft cutter. Aren't they adorable?

She inspired me to make Naughty or Nice pillows for Christmas. I don't have a special craft cutter (yet!), so I asked my mother-in law to embroider the words onto a white fabric. She did and I love the fun fonts that she used!

I couldn't find a special fabric I wanted for the back, but I did find these Christmas Green napkins at World Market! The perfect color to match my Holiday Tree Pillows!

I also found 14 inch pillow forms in my closet! Perfect!

 I got to work cutting out both fabrics. I cut the white fabric down to 16 inch on all four sides. I cut the green napkins down to 16 inches wide and 18 inches tall. I needed room for the back fabric to over lap.

I placed both fabrics right sides together, overlapping the green fabrics slightly.

Then I pinned up all for sides.

Next, I sewed a quarter inch seam on all four sides.

Turned the pillow cover right sides out.....

Added the Pillow Form......


The Back


The Front!!!

What do ya think? I think they are pretty darn cute!
 They go so well with the "Sew" Easy Holiday Tree Pillows.

What holiday goodness have you been up to? Please share!
