Everyone hopes to get a warm gift in the chilly winter, not to mention on Christmas day. Then what Christmas gifts to make is a concerned issue for all of you. How do you think of a Christmassy throw pillow for leaning on? It is an original design with patterns and colors that most common at Christmas which creates an amazing balance. Now let's see how to make a throw pillow.



  1. Step 1 1

    Sew elk pattern
    Cut out a big pentagram, a head, a nose and two elk antlers from felt. Make a bow with red and green ribbons and prepare two beads as eyes. Sew the nose on head and stitch the head in the center of pentagram. Draw an arc on each ear as the shadow part of ears. Sew the elk antlers over the head in place and stitch the shadow parts along the arc line and edge using thread in similar color with elk antlers.

  2. Step 2 2

    Sew pentagram on cloth
    Sew two eyes on the head. Cut out two pieces of square white cloth for making the throw pillow. Pin the pentagram at lower right corner of one cloth and straight stitch along the edge of it with 4 strands of green thread.

  3. Step 3 3

    Sew embellishments
    Sew the pattern of 'merry Christmas' on the upper left corner of the cloth using straight stitch with red thread. Cut out four strips of red polka dots cloth and pin them on the cloth to frame the patterns, and then sew the strips. Glue the ribbon bow on the pentagram in place. Cut out two small pentagrams from green felt and sew them on the cloth.

  4. Step 4 4

    Sew a pillow
    Take the other square cloth and place two cloths right side face to face, sew the edges with an opening. Turn the pillowcase inside out. Stuff the pillow and sew the opening.
