Appliqued Deer Silhouette Pillow

deerpillow

Jessica from Sew Homegrown created this deer head silhouette pillow to add a little festivity to her couch. Jessica’s hubs drew a pattern (that has kindly been made available to Jessica’s readers), which Jessica traced and cut from a colorful, textured fabric. She then used a dense zigzag stitch to sew the deer to the front square of the pillow. Like Jessica, I love that this pillow is seasonal without being too Christmas-y, so you don’t have to pack it up with the rest of your Christmas decorations.
