Panited Christmas pillow.

I know- 2 days ago I posted a Halloween project I had just finished and now I am posting a Christmas one. Sick! I saw a pillow just like this one on Pinterest and fell in love. It is from Pottery Barn from 2009. I knew I had a Cricut cartridge (Christmas Noel) with this image on it and decided to try my hand at replicating it. It was a little bit tricky but I am so glad I tried it. I used Osnaburg fabric I bought at Hobby Lobby  (regular price-$3.99 a yard, price with 40% off coupon- $2.40) I found jingle bells to match my red paint at Michaels and sewed them onto the corners with Linen thread. I used red acrylic paint for the image but didn't have any fabric extender so it took a while longer to get the image filled in. I love painting on fabric but I have to admit that I hold my breath every time I peel my vinyl off in hopes that I have not bled. I think my whole pillow probably cost me under $2.00 to make. Now if I can just find some large red and white checked fabric to make a companion pillow
