I made these pillows out of burlap and felt embellishments I found at the Dollar Tree. My mom had given me a huge pile of pillow forms she got at an auction.

Red burlap and snowflake. I fringed the edges on this one

Regular brown burlap and a Christmas tree:

Regular burlap and grey and white snowflakes. The snowflakes on this one had holes in them to hang as ornaments so I added the bow in the existing holes.

I just did a simple envelope back in case I ever wanted to change out the case:

I'm thinking I need to make the bow out of twine on the grey and white snowflake one. What do you guys think?

I did make a mini tute on my blog here if anyone is interested.

C & C always welcome!

I think the twine would be better suited for the snowflakes.

Otherwise, they are fabulous.  Nice work.

Thanks for the input pinokeeo! I was thinking it would look better that way too. I have to put twine on my list of stuff to buy at the store.
