A Christmas Cross Stitch Pillow

I’m still thinking about Christmas!

I am apparently having a thing for animals with big noses! The puppy tray and Crimbo pillow that I just made both have big noses, too! I actually made the cross stitch last January while I was in bed with my leg issues. I finished it pretty quickly and then set it aside not knowing what to do with it. Then right before Christmas, I happened to find it again. I pulled it out and this pink fabric just happened to be sitting out and I knew they had to go together!

The pattern is from Durene Jones. She has all sorts of really great free patterns on her facebook page. And this is one of them! There’s also a coordinating Santa that I want to make!

For the back I just used a full piece of the pink fabric. No fancy piecing or anything! And then I did the invisible zipper that’s not quite as invisible as I’d like it to be!

I did finish this one before Christmas even though I’m just now sharing it! But I will admit… I’m still working on some other Christmas projects I either didn’t finish for last Christmas or am excited to make for this year. I’m going to keep them a secret until the next holiday season!
