Homemade Christmas Pillow {with burlap}

 Happy December! It is hard to believe that Christmas is around the corner! It always sneaks up on me way too quickly! I made this little pillow a few weeks ago. I stamped words on cream colored burlap using acrylic paint.
I sewed some fabric strips, and ric-rac, and then backed it with  some muslin, since burlap has lots of nice holes in it :)
It isn't perfect....but it adds a nice little interest to the couch. ☻

Over the years I have made lots of Christmas pillows. It is funny how my taste and styles change over the years. I still have my old pillows- the ones I made using primitive stitching and tea-dying....:) remember those?  They are still cute in their own way....but...  I think I like this look a little better this year :)

Hope you are enjoying the wonderful Christmas Season!! {love it!}

So since I'm dealing with all the craziness of moving this month, you're going to come down and decorate my house for me right!

Love your style. Where you find stamps that large.
