Oh Christmas Tree Pillow with Fairfield World

Sharing is caring!

I love felt and lace, so my Oh Christmas Tree Pillow is quick to create in just about an hour with no patterns and limited sewing. The Poly-Fil Premier Form from Fairfield World makes it easy! Vintage embellishments like lace and trims have been an obsession of mine for a while now, so I created this project to showcase these trims in the best possible way. The white lace and trims look like fancy snow on the felt Christmas trees, don't you think?

Welcome to the Fairfield World Pillow Party!

Our hostess Laura of Me and My Inklings is my craftiest friend AND she has invited 25 designers to create fabulous holiday pillows using the Poly-Fil Premier 20″ Form from Fairfield World.

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

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

.

STEP ONE

To begin the Christmas Tree Pillow, gather all supplies. Fold red ticking fabric with right sides together, facing in. Measure, mark, and cut two squares of fabric 24 inches by 24 inches. Measure in two 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 form.

STEP TWO

Secure the 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. I like to use a .25″ seam allowance when sewing a large project like this.

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 clean fabric cuts. Make sure your fabric scissors are clean and sharpened often.

STEP THREE

Turn the fabric right side out through the 8-inch opening at the bottom of the project. Use a pencil or chopstick to get into the corners, so you have a sharp-looking finished project.

Insert Poly-Fil Premier 20″ Square Pillow Form into the cover. Now, this Premier 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 features!

STEP FOUR

Fold the raw edges of the fabric in, following the sewn seam. Secure the opening at the bottom with straight pins inserted horizontally.

Hand stitch the opening closed with tiny whip stitches using a needle and thread that matches the color of your project.

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.

STEP SEVEN

Apply assorted decorative trim and lace to each felt Christmas tree shape with Fabri-Tac. Embellish lace and trim with Tonic Studios Nuvo Pure Sheen Sequins. Set aside to dry.

Flip each felt Christmas tree over and trim off excess trim and lace with scissors.

STEP EIGHT

Attach each Christmas tree to the felt square, using Fabri-Tac. Starting in the center with the largest tree, and layering the smaller right and left trees on top.

Finally, attach the Christmas tree embellishment to the pillow with Fabri-Tac.
