Christmas pillows to make

I found this project for Christmas tree pillow one of the most enjoyable I ever did! Probably because the end result is so insanely cute! But also because it was super quick, a great way to use some of the scraps I had (for the small pillows) and basically foolproof, with no room for mistakes!

My Christmas tree pillow pattern is the perfect project for beginners as it’s super easy, it involves sewing just a few straight lines, using basic stitches. This project is ready in no time but has such a big impact on your home décor looking as if you’ve spent hours making each pillow! So if you have some time for a quick, easy and fun project this month, I have just the thing for you!

The only “hard” part about this project is stuffing the pillows with poly fill. Those tiny corners were hard to fill at first but then I realized I can use a ruler and a bamboo skewer to push the poly fill to those hard to reach corners and everything went super smooth from that point on.

The pattern for these Christmas tree pillows comes in three different sizes and is available to purchase here!
