Let’s get a jump start on Christmas preparations! If we start now and do a little at a time, when the holiday season rolls around just think how much easier all the prep, gift buying and wrapping and decorating will be! Today I’m sharing a fun NOW SEW pillow! Deer are so trendy right now and no wonder! They are perfect for Christmas! This easy to make, plaid, deer silhouette will work great now too!
And if you like to make gifts, this plaid deer would make the a great one! And here’s the best part… this pillow takes under an hour to make! Let’s get busy…
Before we begin, I would like to announce the winner of the CoringWare Corelle and more $250.00 gift certificate…

Now back to the deer pillow…
It’s time for another…
Make sure you stop by and see all the Christmassy crafts at the bottom of this post!
This buck silhouette looks so handsome in a manly flannel plaid. And there are so many plaids to choose from this year! I’ve chosen a brown, black and white plaid with a thin thread of red going through it for my first buck… and I’m keeping him (Sounds like I’m hunting instead of DIY-ing)! I”ll be making another deer in a green plaid as a gift.
Here’s what you will need to make his fine fellow…
- 1 pillow cover – I chose an 18″ plain linen woven pillow cover
- plaid flannel- 1/4 yard
- fusible webbing or Wonder Under
- iron, hot and NO steam
- deer pattern (HERE)
1. Print the deer pattern
2. Using a sharpie, copy the deer silhouette onto the paper side of the fusible webbing
3. Cut around the deer, as shown, and iron the image to the WRONG SIDE of the flannel according to directions. If you are using a plaid, make sure the plaid is straight and not crooked on your pattern.
4. When the deer pattern adheres to the flannel let it cool for a few minutes. When it is cool, cut out the deer.
5. Gently peel off the paper backing.
6. Center the deer on the pillow cover. Using a hot iron on the no steam setting, iron the deer to the pillow cover, according to the directions, until it adheres. When the deer and pillow are cool, stuff the pillow with an insert!
YOU JUST GOT YOUR FIRST DEER!
Wouldn’t this regal buck look great in a red and black flannel check? There are just too many options! I hope you will make one for yourself… and maybe one as a gift too!
