My swap partner with the Pillow Talk Swap likes linen, and I'd really like to incorporate linen into the pillow I make for her. I'm excited because I have been interested in working with linen on a project, but haven't jumped in yet. I decided I needed a test run in using linen before actually making her pillow. New Christmas pillow covers for the couch have been on my list for a while now. I used my scraps from my Mug Rug Swap project. I really like using the non-Christmas fabric in red and green. It was a fun easy project and came together really quickly. The white linen does add a really nice texture, but was difficult to use as it frays quite a bit. I starched it, which helped. The back is a simple envelope enclosure. One half is solid red, the other green.
