Pottery Barn-Inspired Pillows

Wow, It's been quite a while since I have posted.  So much has been created in my workroom and I need to start sharing my creations...
Each year for Christmas I get asked why I don't make my gifts.  I always feel like I am being cheap or something and feel funny making my gifts.  This year I decided to make my sister-in-law some pillows.  She had commented on some pillows that she had seen at Pottery Barn and really hinted that she would love them!

I made my own version of a pillow that has socks sewn on burlap and appear to hanging from twine. I found some really cute socks and went to town...
To my surprise, the pillows really came out nice and I decided to make a coordinating pillow with Christmas Trees.  I used upholstery fabric to cut the trees and appliqued them on the pillow cover.  I then rummaged through my Button Can and decorated the trees!




This year my pillows were my favorite gift and I was so excited to give them to Edie!  She loved them!!
