Hi there!  I made this pillow for my partner, loves2experiment, in the Ho3 swap!  She had an amazing theme of Ho Ho Ho, which was totally fun to craft for! 

I made this pillow using a really easy and simple tutorial I found here:  http://www.texascottageblog.com/2011/08/easy-envelope-pillow-covers.html

I'm a really inexperienced sewer, but I had no problems understanding and executing this pillow with ease!  Plus, its an envelope pillow cover, so you can get a pillow and then make a bunch of these cases and change 'em out whenever you feel like!

The front has a panel of burlap with a freezer paper stenciled Ho Ho Ho.  Before you sew your pillow all up, sew this panel onto the front of your pillow, then finish sewing it up. 

Thanks for looking!
