Christmas can be a crazy time of the year, and often, a sense of humor helps us get through it! This hand-stitched pillow will make a delightful and whimsical addition to your holiday decor. I hope you enjoy this holiday season and all of the merriment it has to offer!

This ebook comes with complete instructions for embroidering the front panel and sewing it into a home decor pillow. The design is also sized for framing it into an 8" x 10" frame if desired.

This ebook also includes a pictorial review of the embroidery stitches used in this pattern. For detailed instruction regarding each stitch, please download my free ebook entitled, "Stitching Essentials" available through You Can Make This and You Can Quilt This.
