Poinsettia Pillows

Did you ever have a project or a craft that you wanted try and it took you a year or more?  Yes, that ‘s me because there is ALWAYS something I see or think of doing.  Last Christmas season, I saw this felt poinsettia pillow and knew I HAD to have it!  It was pretty late in the season and with all the shopping, baking, and wrapping presents, it did not come to fruition.  But, I kept a mental note and finally did it!  Yeah!
I just think this is the cutest thing ever.  I love working with felt as it does not fray.  That means less time on the sewing machine.  A lot less time.  Just cut the shapes and go.  Of course, I had to sew them down to the pillow cover but I whenever I work with felt, I feel as if I “cheated”.  LOL!  
How fun is this pillow?  I am thinking about making another one in red….maybe put glitter on the button or bells!

I think this makes a great addition to my front hallway and pleases me each time I pass by(usually with the laundry ;( )  I made the pillow cover removable so I can stash it away with all the other Christmas decorations.   I’m actually thinking of creating a couple of these holiday themed, of course, Valentine’s Day, St. Pat’s Day, Easter, July 4th, using felt.  I can just keep reusing the same pillow form….
Now can you understand why my projects NEVER end-I keep creating new projects.  Now for some eggnog…..
