Homemade Holiday Fabric Goodies


If you'd asked me a few years ago, I wouldn't have dreamed I'd be the type of person to whip up my own table runners and pillow covers.  But I wanted some Christmas-y stuff and didn't want to spend a lot of cash on something that will spend most of the year in a box, so I decided to give it a go.

My table runner, while it ended up OK, could use a little work still.  (It's a very long seam to keep straight and even.)  

However, I will probably never buy another pillow cover again.  Literally, it's one of the easiest bits of sewing ever to come out of my machine.  Like, if you've ever made a pillow, it's even easier than that.  I used these directions, and it only took me about twenty minutes to make two.  At that rate, my little throw pillows are likely to get new covers every month!
