So the song goes- It’s the most wonderful time of the year. That’s the song that keeps playing over and over in my mind as I begin to gear up for the holidays. Seriously, it’s pretty much on repeat as I unpack the holiday decor and add festive touches around the house. This year, I wanted something new and thought a few Snow Globe inspired applique pillow designs would fit perfectly into the mix.

This festive snow globe inspired DIY applique pillow is the perfect addition to my Christmas home decor. The cover makes it easy to pack away for next year.

Supplies:

Snow Globe Applique Bundle Pack Pattern by The Sewing Loft

For my pillow, I used my Snow Globe Trek Pattern but any quilt block or applique design can be used. After your finished 12″ center block is finished, it’s time to attach the border. I centered my applique block on a piece of batting and stitched the border all around.

Cut fabrics as follows:

  • center panel 12″ square
  • cut 2  rectangles 3″ x 12″
  • cut 2 rectangles 3″ x 16″

*cutting instructions is for pillow front only. Additional fabric is required for the back of pillow. This will be determined by your pillow insert. My insert is a 16″ square Decorator’s Choice by Fairfield World.

Prepwork:

I prepped and cut out my applique design pieces with double sided fusible, positioned them and ironed in place on my center square.

Then it was time to have fun stitching everything in place. Before I pulled out my free motion presser foot, contrast thread and got lost in the process, I centered my design on a layer of batting.

Not only does the batting provide a stabilizing layer but it also helps provide the element of texture with the pebble quilting.

Final Sewing:

Using 1/4″ seam allowance, join the additional pieces to create a finished block 16″ square.

Be sure to press each seam, add any additional top stitching and square up final unit.

I added 3 rows of 1/4″ topstitching in contrast thread to really set off the center.

Since pillows like this are only brought out around the holidays, my closure method of choice is a zipper.  They really are so much easier to install then people thing. Don’t forget to trim corners before turning right side out.

Because I love the snow globe trek design so much, I went ahead and created another applique pillow with the buggy. Don’t you just love that pom pom fringe? It reminds me of snow.
