Every year my bunco group does one of those gift exchanges where you draw numbers and take turns opening packages. It's the kind of thing that starts out civil but ends with stealing and fits of laughter.
I made this pillow for the swap.
It's made with a khaki cotton that has a linen look that's on a 12 inch pillow form. The poinsettia petals are cut out of ivory felt and stitched down with linen floss. I used buttonhole twist thread to stitch the jingle bells.
Today I'm doing my best to finish up some presents and getting started on this years teacher gifts - hope the oven is ready.
