CCAYR - January - Anything Goes Christmas

Hello there!  It's time for another wonderful challenge over on the Christmas Crafts All Year Round blog.  Our theme this month is Anything Goes Christmas/Holidays.  

I sewed some pillow covers.  I got the fabric when JoAnn's had a really good sale on it for the holidays.  I had pillows from the summer clearance sale at Michael's.  So, I covered the flamingos and such and viola--Christmas pillows :-)  This is a very easy sewing project great for any skill level.  They came together so fast.  I used this tutorial  from utube.  I actually made four of these covers but I'm only showing two.
