Triangle Trees


IMG_6933

I think I first saw this pillow idea in the Better Homes and Garden’s Christmas magazine (by this gal). Its a good way to use a few scraps and it looks nice and un-fussy. I’m taking bets as to how long it takes my kids to pull that bell of there though…I’m guessing 24 hours tops.

Where's that Elf on the Shelf when you need him? ;o) Really cute idea! I want to try this. Thanks for sharing! :o)

LOVE IT! I may have to make a similar pillow, but I don't think that I have such cute green scraps. Need to look through the scrap bin.

I love that pillow. The bell would last 1 hour in my house. It wouldn't be my daughter who'd tear it off. My cats love anything dangly and/or jingly. And I say 1 hour because they would be asleep for the first 59.39 minutes.

really cute! i'd give mine about a minute to pull it ;)

sandra said...

They look FABULOUS! I would love to see a tutorial on how you did the piping. mine just doesn't seem to get nice and tight like yours...

looks GREAT!

Hector said...

Would you mind if I borrow this idea for myself? Thanks.

Perfect Christmas project: festive, charming, but low-key. Definitely going on my to-make list, though it'll probably have to wait for next Christmas .

Love it, it's perfect for the holidays!

Too cute! In my house, I would make bets on my kitty ripping it off before my kids.

Cute pillows!!
What did a woman say to me while I was working at Hancock Fabrics: "If when I die and during the funeral, if behind the hearse there is a U-Haul full of fabric, I planned it right" - funny, huh?? I personally am well on my way!

Di~ said...

Very cute, I love the trees!

Maybaby said...

So cute! I'd have to forgo the bell...my terriers and my cat would have it off so fast! :)
