One Monthly Goal - December Finish Link Up

Now that all the gifts have been unwrapped, it's time to share your December finishes from our  December Goal linkup.

One Monthly Goal will continue in 2017!!  I've lined up great sponsors and can't wait to share!  All will be announced on January 1, 2017.

My December goal was to make a pillow for my daughter to match the quilt I made her for her dorm room.  I just love the way it turned out.  I used the bits and scraps left over from the quilt and added in some aqua to brighten things up.  This is a big pillow - 24'' x 24'' x 4'' .  I put a zipper in one of the side panels to make it removeable.  

Once upon a time this pillow was coverd with Disney princess fabric.  It (and my daughter) have grown up!  (After I had made the pillow cover but before I shoved it placed the pillow form gently inside I decided it would be a good idea to wash it.   Before it was a true flatish rectangle, 4'' tall.  When it came out of the wash, everything had redistributed and now it is big a puffy!  Thank goodness it all fit.)

Make sure you visit the One Monthly Goal event page for the specific requirements for links and social tags. 

And remember, to be eligible for the prize(s) by random drawing you must linkup at both the goal setting and the accomplishment linkups.
