It's beginning to look a LOT like Christmas around here! Sometimes when I'm in the middle of a big project and it starts feeling tedious, sewing something small refreshes me, and then I can jump back in with enthusiasm. So, that's just what I did. I have been sewing up a storm on a few Christmas gifts that need to be kept secret, but this pillow was a perfect little diversion.
I had a single mini charm pack of Evergreen by Basic Grey, and it was almost enough to make this 12" x 16" pillow. I had to add six additional squares (for 48 total) from my Christmas scraps, but I think the additions blend well with the collection.
The back is a rich Christmassy green from my stash with a simple envelope closure, and a Kona Red binding frames it all nicely.
I picked this mini charm pack up over the summer when the line first came out, and it is my first experience with them. There so cute and inexpensive, but I wasn't entirely sure what I wanted to do with it, especially since I just had one. It helped make a perfect little brain break, though! Back to the grind!
