A while back I made a pillow cover for fall. I wanted to make another one for Christmas. My first attempt I messed up and although it's still usable it's very hard to get the pillow in and out. Rather than scrap the whole thing I decided I would permanently leave it on the pillow and make a decorative band for it that I can change out to match the season. I had a buffalo plaid scarf in my craft stash that I cut to size. Then I added some velcro and it was good to go.
Now I just need to cut the vinyl for my Christmas pillow cover.
