Pillow Covers From CUTE Dish Towels

 I bought some of the cutest Christmas dish towels a few years ago. 
 I *FINALLY* made time to make them all into pillow covers. 
 I had so much fun mixing and matching fronts, backs, zipper covers. 
 I decided to make all the covers for 20" pillows. 
 I quilted each of the fronts. 
 The pillow covers are all lined too.  

Here is the parade of pillow covers.

I gifted this one to my niece that has 4 girls under the age of 5!

For the zipper cover I used the cut off of the dish towel.  
Worked GREAT!

Next up was one I got to use Max the dog print (from the Grinch).  
I made some candy cane bias binding.  

I had bought the cutest little iron on labels so put them on the back of each pillow cover.

I really loved the print I used for the border and back on this one.

I took a break and made a LOT of cookies!
Snickerdoodles, molasses ginger, Swedish Cardamom, a Cardamom shortbread, peanut butter blossoms and chocolate chip.

It was so BAD! 
 I am eating low carb but I think I ate my weight in cookies, d'oh!

Then I started back on the pillow covers.

I quilted a Christmas tree into this one with a star on the top!

I think this one is my all time favorite!  
I'm a sucker for the aqua and red!

Our neighbors down the street put up an amazing light display 
so we walked there and took some pictures.

OK, that's all for the moment.
I need to get to wrapping, and grocery shopping.

If I sew anything else before Christmas I will be sure to show.
I made a few quilts for gifts that I can't show until after Christmas so hopefully you will stop in.

That is a great idea... I received a dishtowel from one of my "stitch and b***h" members for Christmas... and I will make it into a pillow like yours!!
