I made this pillow for my partner in the Vintage Christmas swap. We both like Mid-Century Mod décor so I stuck with that theme.



The tree design is from a print that I found on the Google machine. I painted the white trees and rocks onto a piece of linen fabric and then stitched on the pine trees using felt and embroidery floss.



I framed the linen piece with black fabric and then added the red circle fabric to make it a little more Christmas'ey feeling Smiley.



Thanks for checking it out! Happy Holidays!!

Thanks! It went pretty well with our living room chairs so it was a little tough to send away Smiley.

I just love this!  Trees are my holiday decor theme and something like that would be so great for us... if certain canine family members didn't feel it was necessary to rid the furnishing of all pillows and most cushions. (jerks)
