Winter Holiday Pillows

Created By:

Skill Level: Advanced

These 18" square velvet pillows take little time away from all of your Holiday plans and shopping. The icey snowflake-like embroidery is a motif (ja00326) from Lonni Rossi's embroidery collection "Enchanted Garden" for Artistic and were done on the Horizon Memory Craft 15000.

The white and taupe velvets are so easy to work with! Lonni used one color for the entire motif, silver thread on the taupe velvet and light tan on the white. 

Installing the invisible zippers are easy too with the special zipper attachment that comes with your machine. Learn how to install a concealed zipper by clicking here.

I like the concept, but the directions are "sloppy." Nowhere in the supply list does it mention the felt or the batting (how much?). Also, I would never use a high loft batting in a placemat, or a table runner, as I think that it would be too unstable for a glass. The next time I make these, I will cut out the batting (I use flannel) and spray baste it to the wrong side of the Dresden plate before I put the Dresden plate on the felt to cut out. I have not yet washed the finished placemat, and am hoping that the single layer of felt does not curl up, or become distorted after washing/drying.

I made this today but your cutting directions need to be changed. You only need 4 of color 1 and color 3 4.5 squares for the triangles. Also the inner border, you only need 2 cuts as WOF is long enough to cut each in half to fit the sides.
