Here’s what you will need to create a Christmas Tree Pillow:

 

 

Here’s how to create a Pillow with Fairfield World:

 

STEP ONE

 

Fold pillow ticking fabric with right sides together, facing in.  Measure, mark, and cut two squares of pillow ticking fabric 24-inches by 24-inches.  Measure in 2-inches from each edge and mark off a 20-inch by 20-inch square with a pencil.  Make two pencil marks, leaving an 8-inch opening at the bottom center of the fabric to insert the pillow form.

STEP TWO

 

Secure fabric together along the pencil lines with straight pins, and then sew the fabric with a sewing machine, leaving the 8-inch opening at the bottom.  Remove straight pins and cut loose threads.

Trim approximately one-inch of excess from each edge of the fabric with scissors.  TIP:  I don’t do a ton of sewing but I do have a pair of scissors dedicated to all my fabric and sewing projects so that I get a clean fabric cuts.

STEP THREE

 

Turn fabric right side out through the 8-inch opening at the bottom of the fabric.

Insert Poly-Fil Premier 20″ Square Pillow Form into the pillow cover.  Now, this Premier Pillow Form is not your Momma’s pillow form because it is soft, squishy and extremely comfortable – not hard and stiff.  The 20-inch square is a great size for a decorative pillow but is also perfect for snuggling and napping which are important pillow features!

STEP FOUR

 

Secure the opening at the bottom with straight pins inserted horizontally.

Hand stitch the opening closed with tiny stitches using a needle and thread.

STEP FIVE

 

Measure and cut a 14-inch by 14-inch square of Kunin™ Classic Felt Sandstone.  Attach decorative trim along the edges with Beacon Adhesives Fabri-Tac.  Set aside to dry.

STEP SIX

 

Cut out simple Christmas tree shapes from Kunin™ Classic Felt Olive, Kelly, and Pirate Green.  One large, using the entire 12-inch length of the craft cuts felt sheet and two slightly smaller with longer trunks.  Create a pattern from scrap paper if that is your preference.
