**********

Hi there!

I am Jen from City Farmhouse & I am really excited to be sharing this project with all of you!

When I began planning for the holidays a few months ago,

I knew I had to have some plaid, wool pillows:).

I looked high & low for some reasonable & neutral ones but

nada-nothing.

So…I got creative after finding the perfect throw.

I thought huh…

I can get 3-18″ x 18″ pillows {+ a few ornaments} from 1 throw for 19.99,

jackpot!

I did buy the feather inserts from Pottery Barn Outlet{love} but still,

way under budget!

The throw I used was, 47″ x 71″.

Tip-Use your finished edges for the openings for your envelope back.

From 1-18.5″ cut going across,

I got 1 full square in the middle {which is the front}

&

2 halves with a finished edge {on either side} for the envelope backs{see step #6 below}.

My cuts where 18.5″ x 18.5″ for the fronts

& I cut 2- 18.5″ x 11 with the finished edges for the envelope backs.

This is a big time saver.
