Pinata Pillow

 Have you ever had a pinata at a birthday or holiday party? They are very common around here and they come in just about every shape, color, and theme you could imagine.
This little pillow reminds me of a pinata. I made it using scraps and it was very easy to make. 
I have a free pattern download just for you, my loyal readers, at my Craftsy storefront. Just click on the button at the top of my sidebar and it will take you there. You will see the pillow among my quilts. (While you're there, take a look around. I am currently uploading all my patterns to this site. It is taking a while for me to do that, but as I do, I'm making a note of it on my "My Patterns" page at the top of this post.)

This little pillow is easy to make! It might be a nice Christmas gift for someone you know. The colors can be changed. How about one in a gradation from white, to grays, to black? Or maybe stripes of school colors? Use your imagination.

  11. Hi Linda,
    Beautiful Pinata pillow - thank you for your generosity. I am having difficulty on how to sew the strips onto the foundation. Is it like foundation piecing? I just can't understand how I would create the cuts.
    Thanks. Blessings to you
