Today's showcased tutorial will help you get organised early for Christmas. I know, the festive season seems so far away, but every year it comes around faster than I would like. Planning ahead is the key!!!
Susan, from Super Mom No Cape!, shows how to make a Quilted Christmas Wreath Pillow Cover. The detailed tutorial, complete with embroidery pattern, will step you through:
- piecing the front of the pillow cover
- embroidering the centre design
- basting the quilt sandwich
- quilting the front of the pillow cover
- sewing the pillow cover
Whether you call them pillows, or cushions as we do in Australia, this would be a lovely addition to your Christmas decor, or would make a lovely gift.
The Quilted Christmas Wreath Pillow Cover is the first in a series of four tutorials - Sew Early for Christmas. Watch out for my tutorial on Monday.
- Neck Roll Pillow
- Felted Sweater Pillow
- Luggage Tag Pillows
- Shirt Cushion
- Flanged Pillow
Do you pace yourself throughout the year with Christmas sewing, or do you end up sewing at the eleventh hour?
This is a great tutorial - I've just picked out my fabrics for it and hopefully will get the top sewn up later today... after my nap :) xxReplyDelete
That's a lovely way to kick off Christmas sewing Pam, looking forward to seeing what else you have lined up.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for showcasing my tutorial, Pam. I had so much fun creating the Quilted Christmas Wreath Pillow Cover Tutorial. I look forward to seeing what you, Joy and Dione have to share with us over the coming Mondays of the Sew Early 4 Christmas Blog Hop!ReplyDelete
