Thanksgiving themed cards

With a lot to be thankful for this time of year, here are a couple Fall/Thanksgiving themed cards. Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!


Owl Pillows

A while back I got the pattern for these adorable owls from Just Another Hang Up. I love all things owls and these were too cute not to make! I made mine out of flannel that I got at Joann’s on Black Friday and stuffed them with fiber fill. I think the next one I make will be rice filled for heating up on cold winter days.

Silent Night Holy Night Pillows

It’s beginning to look a lot little like Christmas. Christmas preparation has started and these pillows were at the top of my list.
Using Photoshop I printed my text (Porcelain font at 300pt) then pinned it to my linen fabric that I purchased at Joann’s (with a 40% off coupon).  

I then traced the text with an Ultra Fine Point Sharpie filling in smaller areas as I went. After filling it all in I used a regular Sharpie and went over the larger areas to make sure it was thoroughly colored. I ironed the back of the fabric to set it after I was done. I finished up my pillows by sewing them into envelope style covers and inserted my pillow forms.

These were super easy and a great start to the Christmas season! I’m thinking of doing a few more with other Christmas songs or phrases. Any suggestions?
