Let It Snow - A Winter Pillow

I hope all of you have enjoyed
a very merry Christmas!

I've just spent some time catching up
with my good friend,
and I gave her a little gift
that can be used all winter long...
a Let It Snow winter pillow!

For this project,
I used some "ink swatches"
I had purchased from Sweetwater on Etsy.

{They don't seem to be available any longer, but they carry some similar items.}

I used the pattern that was included with the ink swatch,
to create the pillow front.

For the pillow backing,

This particular pillow finished at 12" x 16",
so I just started with a backing piece that was about 13" x 17".
I decided to attach the zipper cover
about 1/3 of the way across the pillow,
vertically, for extra interest.

I am sew in love with this project!
The lipstick red ink swatch looks great against
some white-on-black polka dots.

{The polka dots look kind of like snowflakes, right?}

On the back,
I've chosen a large red gingham print.

It contrasts well with the polka dots, don't you agree?

I added my little eamylove label,
so my friend knows that I made this pillow just for her!

My little snowman models are cheering for snow.
So far, there's been no snow to shovel here in my neighborhood.

I have a feeling that we'll be seeing some flakes soon, though!

Have a Happy New Year, Friends!
