Football season is upon us and in our state, it is a favorite pastime. I had some remnants of quilted muslin which I really love to sew with. Whenever I visit my local fabric store, I am always on the lookout for it. If they have any, I grab and stash for future projects. Using this fabric for the Football Season Pillow was very easy. I cut two 12 inch squares and then embroidered the football and the saying on the front of one fabric piece. Then I put the two squares right sides together sewed around four sides leaving a space to turn. Fiberfill helped fluff it up and I hand sewed the pillow closed.
Here it is about to be wrapped up for a door prize. If you are attending a tailgate party, something like this pillow would be a great last minute hostess gift also. The best part about it is if you don't make it team specific, anyone who receives it can enjoy. As it turns out the person that won this at our gathering absolutely loved it and said she knew exactly the spot in her home it would be decorating. Sometimes, simple really is the best kind of gift! I hope you have enjoyed this post, share what you learn and are generous with what you make. Someone will appreciate your hard work!
