DIY Christmas: Christmas Pillows

I had a ton of scraps left over from my Christmas quilt, so I made three Christmas pillow covers to match it and love the way they turned out.

The first one I made was just 2.5 inch blocks sewn together in strips. (Very simple project, btw!)

I made the next one in strips.

And for the last one, I made a string quilt block. I used this awesome tutorial, and I cannot wait to make an entire quilt from these squares.

The only thing I’ll do differently next time is that I will definitely make a border to go around the quilt block. It was super hard to attach a lining without one.

I installed invisible zippers on all three pillow covers using this (also awesome) tutorial.

And all three pillows again, from a slightly different angle.

Merry Christmas!

  1. [...] Then I pulled out some Christmas fabric that I love. Of course, it’s the week before Easter…. but why not make a Christmas pillow cover? I added linen “steps” between my quilt fabric. I love it! I  need to bring in different textures and fabrics more often. I used this fabric to make this Christmas quilt and these Christmas pillows. [...]
