Ten Projects-Project #9

I finally finished my BIG project! I’m so glad this one is behind me (whew!), but incredibly thrilled that I actually did it! And I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out!

I was inspired by this amazing pillow by Amy at Nana Company that I came across on Pinterest over a year ago. It’s so beautiful! I had never quilted anything, but my mother-in-law is a quilter, so I thought I could attempt something similar with some help from her and this tutorial that I also found on Pinterest.

They are far from perfect and look nothing like Amy’s, but I’m really proud of them! And best of all, the kids love them!

My original plan was to make them pillow cases, but once I started, I realized that would be a little more difficult than I thought I could manage. I’ve sewn a pillow before, so I figured I would do that instead.

I can tell them apart by one patch on each one. Hudson’s has a Santa patch in the center.IMG_0604

And Harper’s has a Mrs. Claus patch in the center.IMG_0607

I plan on hand embroidering their initials on the backs of the pillows. I still have to look up how to do it!IMG_0609IMG_0610

I’m so happy to be able to add these pillows to our holiday decor and hope that the kids can enjoy them for years to come!

Hooray!!
