I have been busy sewing up a Reindeer Christmas Cross Stitch cushion with pom pom trim. The original pattern is from Cross Stitcher Magazine.
Ive shared my image of my finished reindeer cross stitch cushion and I love it to much I wanted to blog about it too!
Once I had finished my cross stitch piece I wanted to make it into a cushion for Christmas. I had some gorgeous pom pom trim and luckily just enough gingham fabric to use as a backing. I’d never used pom pom trim before so I was a little nervous but it was gorgeous and worth the thousands of pins I used to hold in place.
I sewed the cushion all the way round and then unpicked a small gap to stuff with feathers from an old cushion. The feathers went everywhere! It was rather fun. If I didn’t have to clean up myself I would have thrown them around in a happy child way.

I’m very happy and I love having this on the sofa and cuddling up to it while gazing on our fabulous Christmas tree.
If you’re interested in the Christmas cross stitch pattern it is from across Stiticher Magazine November 2013. I’m sure you can find it online somewhere 🙂
Merry Christmas x
