Winter Tree Throw Pillow3:38 PM
Yet another throw pillow cover for the holidays. Are you sick of these yet?
We were enjoying this outside all day:
2. Trim off excess interfacing and snip corners
3. Puff the pouch, so the fabric isn't touching the interfacing and snip a hole with scissors.
4. Cut the interfacing enough so you can flip the tree right side out.
The fusible side of the interfacing is now also facing out.
5. If you used the fusible interfacing, you can now position your trees where you want them, and iron them on. They will stick to your pillow, while pressing the trees at the same time. If you used the dryer sheet or coffee filter, you can just press them flat, then pin them where you want.
6. Sew applique to pillow top. I chose to just use a straight stitch to sew along the edges. I also peeled the tree bottoms up a bit to shove the fleece trunks under.
I had this white tree. It looked pretty stark on the white pillow, so I added some cheap red buttons to hopefully add some color and interesting texture.
I think I may go back and sew sloping lines with light blue thread to look more like a landscape, rather than floating trees. I planned the sizes of the trees would give it dimension, but it may need a little help.
