Vintage Little Girl Baking Christmas Pillow

SONY DSC

I completed my first Christmas pillow for this year.  It is early to be talking Christmas, but if I don’t share it now I will completely forget about it.   I found this image on Pinterest and was immediately taken by it because it made me think of my granddaughter.

That curly blonde hair and sweet little face.  I used a soft drop cloth fabric for the pillow with a 12 x 12 pillow form.  The same drop cloth I used on my chair slips.

I added a red and white gingham floppy ruffle, which gives it a homespun, farm-like and vintage feel.

This one is for me but I’m thinking of adding it to my Etsy, as a custom order.  What do you think?

When you are making things for Christmas, whether gifts or to sell, you have to start early!

Olá, sou portuguesa e adoro seu blog, como consegue imprimir no tecido, faço algo parecido mas só consigo com folhas de 8-1/2" X 11", para imprimir numa impressora normal. Manda imprimir ou tem impressora para medidas maiores? Obrigada por tudo.

Sweetest pillow ever and it really does look like E! I started my holiday projects a couple of weeks ago. I blame it on Pinterest and Etsy. Lol! For the day job, I'm already pitching spring. Crazy, right?

Kathy,
I love your pillow, so sweet! I used that same image, actually, my image didn't have the Christmas Greetings and the holly on it, That is cute!
Here is a link to my post about how I used the image. It also reminded ME of my Granddaughter, and what I made was for Her!

Kathy, I have got to be the worst blogging friend, I read your Blog everyday and don't take the time to comment. Heck I didn't even get a chance to tell you how deserved you were foe ECS Shop of the Month. How you have emerged since your beginning days of blogging and growing your business. I am just smitten with this Pillow, yes it reminds me of my Granddaughter too!! I would certainly put it in your Etsy Shop as a Custom Order!! I know the Red/White Check Ruffle would be perfect in my Daughter's Home(hint, Hint).

Huggs, Nancy

Boy, you are not kidding about starting early, Kathy. I feel like I need to be working on Easter. I'm always so behind on what I sell if I have to do any creating. Your pillow is adorable, and it's great all year, not just the holidays.
