I finished this cross stitch from Pineberry Lane over my Christmas vacation and sewed it into a small pillow.
The striped fabric is from Moda's Hollywood and Vines line. I cut the fabric on the bias so that the ruffle would have a candy cane look. Before I stuffed the pillow, I inserted four layers of quilt batting scraps (two for the front and two for the back) and then stuffed the pillow with polyester fiberfill. The two layers of batting on each side hide any bumps from the fiberfill.
We don't decorate for Christmas with a whole lot of Santa things, but I just couldn't resist this pattern. Aren't the guys in the sleigh just adorable?!
