Christmas Pillow Cover

Laying out wool, bamboo viscose thrums and fabric.
(Sorry for the poor photo...my camera shudders at the color red!)
 


The textured areas are pieces of red, synthetic fabric.
 


The reindeer fabric is a re-purposed thrift store find!
 


The finished pillow.
 


At Rhinebeck this Fall, I bought some wonderful, bright red roving...

...that I thought would be perfect for holiday projects.

For this pillow, I layered roving, strips of red dotted-swiss fabric (last used here)...

...and blobs of shiny bamboo viscose thrums.

Unfortunately, my camera balked at this color, so the photos aren't great...

...but since Santa brought me a new camera, things may be looking up!! :)

Love the pillow! Glad Santa was good to you. I know how tough certain colors are to photograph -- aggravating!
