Guest Post: 12 Days of Christmas PillowHow exciting, it’s time again for another guest post tutorial! Each guest has been amazing so far, and today’s blogger is no exception. Today Desiree from The 36th Avenue will share with you how to make this absolutely fabulous Christmas pillow! I won’t delay things with my chatter any longer, take it away Desiree!

Hi “Gossipers”!

Guest Post: 12 Days of Christmas PillowI am Desirée the heart behind The 36th Avenue and I AM SO EXCITED { I am yelling here} to be at Craft Gossip today!

With Thanksgiving around the corner and Christmas almost knocking on our doors I wanted to share with you a little Holiday Cheer through this easy and fun project.

My 12 Days of Christmas Pillow…

Guest Post: 12 Days of Christmas Pillow

To make it all you’ll need is the fabric for your stockings and for the pillow I used a place mat that I found at Target.

If you have some fabric scraps put them to use… I think the stockings would look great in different colors as well.


The reason I used a place mat is because the sewing is minimal.

After folding it in half and sewing the bottom part of it I was ready to make the stockings…


Guest Post: 12 Days of Christmas PillowMake a template of your stocking and trace as many as you need on the fabric of your choice.



Guest Post: 12 Days of Christmas PillowAfter tracing start cutting your stockings. When I was done I sewed the edge of the stockings to prevent fraying.

I like to work with canvas it is easy to cut and had a lot of body. Besides this pillow is one of a set of three…

You’ll see them all later ;)



Guest Post: 12 Days of Christmas PillowWith the help of a glue gun decorate your stockings… use things you have around, buttons, ribbon, scrapbooking embellishments…

Make them beYOUtiful, YOUnique and personal…


After you are done decorating them hot glue them to your pillow…


Guest Post: 12 Days of Christmas PillowThen touch them up… and you are done!

All you have left to do is wait and fill up the stocking during the 12 days of Christmas!


Guest Post: 12 Days of Christmas PillowI think they would make a great little gift also!

I got an “awww” from my girls and a “that’s cool” from my boy…
I believe they love it ;)


Guest Post: 12 Days of Christmas PillowNow, do you remember how I said that this little guy was one of three?

Here are the other two.


Guest Post: 12 Days of Christmas PillowI would love for you to stop by The 36th Avenue and check the TUTORIAL out.
