Mom's Pillow

Kerry's and Leila's recent posts about making pillows got my mind whirring.  Naturally, I thought I'd try to make one for my mom.  This was so fun that I might become a pillow addict soon.

I used Kerry's pattern and put my own twist on it with 
added angles, quilting, zipper closure and and put a star on top of the tree.

The star is from an IKEA print and I put a little red hand stitching around it.

For this project I put in my first invisible zipper.

My mom is so excited about the pillow, and that made it easier to let go.
