In late summer I started on my Christmas mini-pillow ornaments, and I finally decided to stop . . . for this year! (They’re addictive!) All they take are little bits of fabric and ribbon, plus buttons, bells, lace, and embroidery . . . oh, and your imagination! P.S. Please check out these links for some more ornaments to try! ♥

Just the cutest…I would just like a small tree with just them on it…so fun!
I think that’s exactly what I’m going to do with them, Marilyn . . . can’t wait to put them out! 🙂
O’ Boy those are just the cutest!
Thank you!!! It was really fun to just make them up as I went along! 🙂
How do you do a give-a-way on the blog? I would like to do one but don’t have a clue how to set it up. Hugz, Lisa
You can write a post about it and invite people to enter by writing a comment (or whatever criteria you choose). Then at the end of the designated time, you can choose a winner or write the names on paper and draw one out of a hat or however you like. Then you post the winner’s name and contact her and ask her to email you her home address so you can mail the prize. This seems like the easiest way, but some of your other blogging friends might have additional ideas! 🙂 The main thing is to have fun! 🙂
OMG! Those are too adorable!
You need to make more and sell them, they are so cute. 🙂
Thank you, Laura! (I almost made one with your coat fabric but suddenly I’d used it all up!) 🙂
I’m glad you enjoyed working with that coat. I should be getting your package this week! Can’t wait to see it all live!! 😀
You’re a doll Katherine, thank you so much for including Boomdeeadda in your post. I see you’ve been a busy girl, how cute. I wish I got half a much done as you do…Have a wonderful weekend, you’ve made my day.
You’re very welcome, Boomdee! I can’t wait to try your button tree ornaments, too! 🙂
Love these too
I wanted you to know also that I have chosen you for an award
When you have time I would love for you to accept it
Thank you so much! I put the *lovely* button you gave me in my sidebar with a link to YOUR amazing blog! I appreciate you!!! 🙂
I appreciate you too as I am in the mood to Learn
You are always so sweet to LIKE my posts it does mean a lot
Love these! So creative!
Thank you! It’s fun working on colorful projects! 🙂
Of course 😉
Very cute, I was making some rectangular ones similar to this in plain cotton. Adding lavender and painting a small design on top. They were great stocking fillers, as are these cute ones. Thanks for inspiring me.
Have you posted yours yet??? I’m eager to see them . . . they sound BEAUTIFUL!!! 🙂
These are great! You always make it look so easy and yet professional – such talent.
What a sweet thing to say! Thank you! 🙂
These are adorable. I have made some pillow ornaments as well, but like any creative person ours are very different. In mine I started with a cross stitch design.
Have you posted them, Lois? I’d LOVE to see them!!! 🙂
No, I haven’t unpacked my Christmas ornaments yet. I will post them when I do.
Can these be any more cute?
Aww . . . what a sweet thing to say! 🙂
Cute and easy…perfect combination for ornaments, gifts, or stocking-stuffers! Thanks for sharing!
You’re very welcome! And thank you for the sweet compliment! 🙂
Thank you!!! They’re already making wonderful little mini-gifts for my family and friends! 🙂
Thanks for sharing these! My favorites are Snow, Jingle bell, and Treble Clef. 😊
I love those, too! 🙂 Two of my Thanksgiving guests chose Snow and Jingle for their take-home gifts! And I’ll be giving Treble Clef to my one and only piano student . . . my granddaughter Allyson. 🙂
These are really cute – I love them! =D
Thank you! 🙂 They don’t have nearly the detail of your amazing pieces, but your work definitely inspires me every time I see it!
So cute! I’m doing an ornament swap in Dec, so this may be just the ticket! Thanks!
It WOULD work! They’re really quick and easy but with such fun results! And you can definitely put your own creativity into each one! 🙂
They are gorgeous, I love them. I just want to make some like this.
You should go for it! It’s so much fun because each one can be different and you can make them up as you go along! 🙂
Sooooo cute! Love this work❤❤❤
Awww . . . thank you!!! 🙂
Thank you!!! It’s always fun to make Christmas things, isn’t it? 🙂
Yes! I love making Christmas things…I just wait too long to start them and then I think, I will make them during the summer when I have plenty of time… well, you get the picture 🙂 Still, I love seeing the Christmas things that YOU make!
These are soooo cute! You have the best ideas!
Thank you, Kerri!!! Coming from such a talented lady, that’s a real compliment! 🙂
They’re so beautiful!
Thank you!!! 🙂
Definitely super cute, but they look like they take ages!
They really don’t! Except maybe that embroidered Christmas tree and toy horn . . . they took a bit longer. 🙂 But I like making these because I can carry them in my purse to work on in odd moments or make some while I watch TV. Now I’m giving them away one by one . . . a good excuse to make more next year, right? 🙂
A great excuse! =)
Reblogged this on My Devon and commented:
What a lovely idea. You could put 1-24 and make it an advent calendar as well.
These are adorable! I love them and you could use them in so many ways to decorate! Have you ever done a mini pillow advent calendar?
Ha! I just went and read the other comments and there was one about an advent set. These really are the cutest!
Thank you so much! So far I’ve been giving them away!!! 🙂 (That way I can have fun making more next year, right?) 🙂
I haven’t, but that is a WONDERFUL idea, Erin! I’ll put it on my list for next year! 🙂
I see these and think “pincushions”! LOL! They would be fabulous ornies too!
They WOULD!!! And that would give me an excuse to make more! 🙂
I love being an enabler! LOL!
Beautiful! The pillows look so happy together, they made me smile. 🙂
What a sweet thing to say! You’re the best! 🙂
Your mini pillows are the cutest, cheeriest ornaments! Thank you so much for linking over to Crafts ‘n Coffee — I was so excited to see the link. Sharon
Thank you, Sharon! And I can’t wait to try some of your lovely ornaments!!! 🙂
These are fantastic! Love them!
Thank you! I really love making these . . . as I’m sure you can tell! 🙂
I love this! I can see so many possibilities. What a great craft to do with children. What a great way to use up bits of fabric. Each little pillow is so unique. Thank you for the inspiration!
Thank you, Thea! I love it that they’re so portable . . . a great project to carry in my bag for craftable moments. 🙂
These are adorable, I want to make some Christmas decorations on Monday for my next Monday make and I think I will be using some of your ideas! Thank you.

So cute!! I’ve made mini-sweater ornaments, but never thought of mini-pillows! I’m going to have to make some. Wonder if I could do a mini version of my entrelac pillow covers?
Ooohhh . . . those would be pretty!!!
These are too cute!! And what a large collection of them! I made some ornaments from my son’s art. Little stuffie like pillows. Nice!
That sounds so cute! Do you have photos? I’d love to see them! 🙂
Oh, I found them on your blog!!! SUPER cute!!!!! 🙂

These are so cute– darling!
Thank you! I’ve been giving them away like crazy over the holidays! 🙂
Thank you for the link to my ornaments! I have done a silly thing though… I tried to change my blog’s username and in the process lost all the links to my old one. Would you mind changing the link from “ericagarrett” to “handmadetalesofdiyderringdo” so that it actually works?
Thanks so much, I feel like such a luddite!
Thank you! 🙂
