Here it is!!! My last Christmas DIY throw pillow for you this year and it’s my very favorite one of all!! Forever I’ve wanted to have cute seasonal bedding but it’s just not in the budget this time of year. Lucky me the backside of our quilt is plain so I was able to add a few little accents to get what I wanted! This Meet Me Under the Mistletoe DIY Pillow is just perfect on our bed and makes me smile every time I walk into our bedroom.
I’m still on the hunt for two red euro shams, looks like they’ll be waiting for next year though since I haven’t been able to find the right red this year. I think I may just have to bite the bullet and make some.
To make this cute pillow you’re going to need the following:
Gold Glitter Iron-on Vinyl
Black Iron-on Vinyl
Red Glitter Iron-on Vinyl
Emerald Green Foil Iron-on Vinyl
Placemat (mine is from Hobby Lobby in the Christmas section)
Sewing Machine (needle/thread)
Design Space Cut File (here)
To create this pillow you’re going to use the same method as my Believe Throw Pillow Tutorial. Instead of typing that all out again I’m just going to tell you in what order I did all my vinyl for the best results, follow that tutorial for the actual pillow making process.
I started but placing my gold glittered Mistletoe on the pillow first since everything else would be spaced around that. Once that was ironed on I started on the mistletoe itself. One of the main rules that I’ve learned with iron-on vinyl is that glitter iron-on always has to be the top layer. That is why I used the Emerald Green foil iron-on for the mistletoe and not a green glitter, it had layers that needed to be on top. So you’ll decide where you want your mistletoe and then iron it down following with the gold glitter bow and the red glittered berries.
My last step was the black meet me under the and I wish I had moved it a bit more to the center. When my placemat/pillow form was still flat everything was perfectly spaced/center but once it was stuffed I feel my M and U are to far to the side, I still love it but when/if I make this pillow again I will move things more to the center (learn from my mistake!).
Once all your iron-on is cool you can start stuffing away. In case you missed it up there in the supply list I linked to the cut file for how I did my pillow, it is set to the size of this placemat pillow.
I really do love how this pillow turned out and would love to see if you make one for yourself!
