I did the counted cross stitch last year and put the pillow together today. Made the back out of two pieces with binding on both horizontal edges. Then I just stitched around all four sides of the pillow and turned it inside out. Stash busting and a lot cheaper than having it framed too :) I made the front and back 1/2" bigger than the size of the pillow to allow 1/4" seam allowance. Think I'll be finishing some Christmas stitcheries the same way.
