Embroidered Snowflake Pillow Covers

I'm feeling pretty good this year in the Christmas decorating department.  I got my tree put up before we left to Las Vegas for Thanksgiving and decorated it Monday after we got home.  Aaaaaand . . . that's about it so far.  But the rest will come together really easily -- swap out a few pieces of art work and string garland down the stairs -- no big.  I loved the embroidered snowflake ornaments I made for my friend so much that I made a few more for our own tree.  Then, I liked those so much, I decided to stitch up some giant snowflakes for pillow covers to go with the flannel pillows I made last year.

I am loving the way they turned out.  {Welll, not they yet.  I only have one of the two finished, but how could the other one go wrong?!}  It has a little Scandinavian feel to it, which reminds me of a ski lodge or something cozy like that.  Plus, y'all know how I love to repeat a motif to tie a room together.  This does just that! 

The process to make these embroidered snowflakes is pretty much exactly like the ornaments.  I cut a piece of black canvas fabric big enough to fit the front of my pillow.  Then I took a big piece of paper and drew out a very basic design to fit my pillow front, transferred it to the fabric with chalk, and started stitching.  I kept adding layer upon layer of embellishment until I was happy with the way it looked.

Once the embroidery was finished, I sewed  a basic envelope-back pillow cover with white pom-pom fringe around the edges.  The fringe reminds me of little snowballs, which is pretty awesome in my book.

So, that's it, my friends.  Another super easy {though a little time-consuming} project for you!  I Redboxed  a movie today so I can cozy up and finish the second one.  How is your Christmas decorating coming along?
