"Believe" Christmas Pillow

Sometimes a single word can speak volumes.


Believe.....in the joy
Believe.....in the spirit
Believe.....in the true meaning 
Of Christmas

Believe in Christmas this year.
In a previous post, I walked you through how to make a personalized name pillow.
You can can make personalized name pillows for every
name, holiday, and special occasion.
Here is the pillow that I made with my mom for Christmas this year. 

Check out the tutorial for step by step instructions on how to make a personalized pillow.

Here are some notes about making this particular pillow:
  • Use a variety of Christmas fabrics that coordinate well together. 
  • Use a mix of busier prints as well as simpler prints.
  • The use of multiple fonts within one word gives it a more modern look.
  • The Star was made from yellow scrap fabric and adds a nice pop to the pillow.
  • The presents with the ribbon were a last minute idea which gives a nice 3D touch.
  • In hindsight, I would add trim to the outside of the white background to frame up the word a little better.
  • If you have any questions, just ask!

Happy Crafting!
