Then two strips are stitched together good sides facing. And pressed.
Next the strips are cut into 2 1/2" wide pieces.
Finally the pieces are sewn sided by side to create the checkerboard look.
Here the pillow front is shown finished. I assembled the tree to the pillow face. I also embroidered snow flakes on it. The big flakes are white, which makes them more texture than popping out.
The red piping is sewed on. I looked online to see all I had to do is snip the corners of the piping to make it curve..
Here is the finished pillow. Might need a little more "shaping".

I have another "crafty" thing in mind. Be sure to come back and see what it is.
Thanks for stopping.
