Snowflake pillow by Youngest Brother

fleece snowflake pillow

Feed Dog Flurry Just a photo today, since it’s the weekend… Youngest Brother made this lovely fleece snowflake pillow for me a couple years ago, and it’s still fitting right in with my Christmas deco.

While trying to figure out what magazine he got the pattern from (Quick Quilts from January 2008), I discovered that he’d given me more of a gift than I even knew: according to, the magazine calls for velveteen. Thankfully Youngest Brother knows that touching velvet, velveteen, and similarly nappy fabrics makes me cringe in fingernails-on-a-chalkboard fashion. Seriously. It creeps me out royally—I can honestly say I will probably never sew anything with velvet. I know, never say never, but even the thought makes my skin crawl. Velvet ain’t no luxury fabric in my book. Is that weird?

Thanks for remembering my delicate sensibilities, Bro!

How extremely odd that velvet freaks you out! I was so entertained by this, thank you for sharing your quirk ;-) . I am currently getting ready to attempt your bird crossing quilt which I have adored since I bought the magazine- and then came across you blog searching out ideas. Thanks for sharing! I will have to send you a pic when I finish... That could be a while!
