My Version

12.04.2011

I saw this pillow a while back in the Pottery Barn catalog and thought it was so cute. I then saw Debbie's cute version. I could have gone and purchased one, but then that little light went on in my head and I knew how I could make my own version without buying a single thing.

This is the PB version from their site.

Here is my version with a twist. I did mine in traditional holiday colors.

I don't really sew so this is a no sew project. I used these little mittens that I purchased last year from Big Lots for my Christmas table setting. I remembered that I had put them away.



I just used my Glue Dots, that I used at Thanksgiving to make the napkin rings, and pressed them in several spots on the back of the mittens and then pressed the mittens on this Pottery Barn pillow cover that I already had. Then I ran a line of twine through all the loops and attached the twine with the Glue Dots, too in several spots. So easy! After Christmas I can just pull everything off.

This look works well with my decorations this year.

  16. Your version turned out so cute! Can you believe I hadn't even seen the pottery barn pillow in their catalog this year? How did I miss that? It's so cute. I like how you added glue dots so you can remove everything without ruining the fabric. Hot glue wouldn't be so forgiving.

  45. I like your version hands down, much more detail in yours. And I'm sure the store bought one was made in China. Richard from the Amish community of Lebanon,Pa

  46. I like your version so much more, for many reasons, one being that you made it and that is always better and second because yours is prettier. I'm not just saying that to be nice either. I think you knocked this one out of the park. Yours should be in PB!

  47. Kim, I love your version with the traditional red and green. I have to agree with Love of the Sea, that you are very clever. That pillow could easily have bunnies and carrots for Easter!!! Thanks, Helen

  57. Kim, I saw that adorable pillow, too, but I could not justify the cost. I think yours looks much better because I like color (especially red). Thanks for the tutorial in explaining how you made it.

  58. Wow! Kim... I guess, I prefer to copy yours rather that the original one §;-)

    Honestly, this is absolutely, gorgeous.

    Happy Sunday.
