I had so much fun putting this pillow together, and thanks to the help of some time saving tips from Therm O Web’s Spray n’ Bond Adhesives, it was really easy, too.

AudreyPettitThermOWebSnowmanPillow2

To get started, die cut a mitten from linen fabric. Set the mitten aside for another project, because for this pillow, we are going to be focusing on the negative shape instead. Here is a pattern, if you do not have a mitten die.

Spray the back side of the fabric with Therm O Web SpraynBond® Fusible Adhesive and layer onto a larger piece of fabric. The Fusible Adhesive eliminates the need to pin the fabric in place, which is a real time saver.

Machine stitch around the outline of the mitten, and around the edge of the fabric using black thread.

Add random embroidery stitches around the outline of the mitten. Mix it up and just have fun!

Stamp snowmen, scarf, and heart images onto the center of the mitten. Using the stamped images as a guide, embroider the outlines of the snowmen and scarves. Satin stitch the heart. If you don’t have this snowmen stamp set, use whatever images you may have on hand, or feel free to use this pattern.

Water color the scarves using a red ink pad and a wet paintbrush. Then paint the snowmen with Gesso. Dry brush more Gesso randomly over the entire piece.

Stamp or write a sentiment onto a thin strip of fabric and hand-stitch with black floss. Apply Fabric Fuse™ Tape to the back of the strip, peel off the liner, and adhere across the bottom.

Lightly lift sentiment strip and tuck lace trim under the bottom edge. Add a few hand-stitches for decoration. Using Fabric Fuse™ Tape, adhere trims across the top of the mitten.

Spray the back of the fabric with SpraynBond® Fusible Adhesive and adhere onto a larger piece of fabric. Machine stitch the edges. Dry brush with additional Gesso.

Cut a second piece of fabric the same size as the layered front. Placing right sides together, machine stitch the pillow closed, leaving a small opening. Turn the pillow right side out, fill with polyfill fiber and slip stitch the pillow closed.

Adhere buttons with Zots™ Medium Clear Adhesive Dots. Tie a bow from shabby seam binding. Adhere onto pillow using Zots™, along with another button tied with hemp cord.

    Wow, Amy, what a great baby bib project. I am definitely going to try that. I have never heard of iron on vinyl. Can’t wait to try it myself. Thanks for sharing the tips and the pattern.

    Audrey, your pillow project is simply gorgeous!! I love all of the details, the hand stitching, and the stamping!! Truly a masterpiece. I wish I lived closer so I could see it up close.

    Lovely work today ladies!!
