Leg Lamp Pillow for Dad is complete!

Well it took me a few days longer than anticipated due to some emergency gift-making (I can’t even remember what I did now… ugh, I’m getting old) but here’s my leg lamp pillow!


  • Background fabric – aqua and tan moda crossweave. I don’t know the exact name of the color but it’s light blue and tan woven.
  • Shade: Kona Curry, my favorite!
  • Skin colored fabric for leg
  • Nylon netting for stocking from JoAnn’s
  • Faux Suede for shoe
  • White pom pom trim. I was going to put more black trim around the edge but I felt like it needed more Christmassy lightness so I went with the white pom poms and red backing.
  • Ice cream sundae from Bonnie and Camille for the backing
  • Fringe from JoAnn’s – Make sure you use lots of fray stop when you cut it!!!!!!!!
  • Finished size 20″ x 20″

Just to remind you, here’s my Dad with the leg lamp at the Christmas Story house in Cleveland.
