I received some lovely corduroy from a friend. This fun project made great use of the leftover corduroy fabric, but you could use any fabric of your choice.

What you need

red, green, and brown fabric, we used corduroy
pins
various buttons
scissors
Cotton batting or a pillow form

What you do

Using the pattern as a guide, cut the pieces out of the fabric. If using corduroy, be prepared for a mess since it sheds and frays easily. I kept my lint roller on stand-by.

1

Pin the pieces in place on the pillow fabric and, since corduroy does shed, used a satin stitch in matching thread to attach to the fabric. If I was using a non-fraying fabric, I probably would've used a blind or blanket stitch by hand.

2

Once all the pieces were attached, I sewed on some buttons I had laying around as ornaments. Sew the front and back sides of the pillow with wrong sides together, turn, stuff, and finish.
