I was taking a look at Christmas pillows recently and fell in love with this Car Embroidered Lumbar Pillow Cover from Pottery Barn. This pillow cover is made of pure cotton and has an envelope enclosure. It measures 16″ x 26″ and is just the sweetest winter scene. But as much as I love this pillow, I don’t really love the price – $59.50 for the pillow cover. Pillow insert sold separately. Right now you’ll get FREE shipping. Every little bit helps, I guess, right?
So I set out to find a few options that are less expensive – and that could serve as a satisfactory substitute for my newfound affinity for snowy station wagons sitting on my sofa. (Try saying that three times fast!)
Here’s what I found!
Christmas Pillows – The Look for Less
This version of the car Christmas pillow is much less expensive the original Pottery Barn version (only $19.99) – and it even comes with a bonus reindeer driver! Ha! This pillow incorporates both appliqué and embroidery, so it’s a bit of a different look from the fully embroidered pillow above. I’m willing to embrace its differences, though, including the biggest difference – its price! This pillow measures 12″ x 18″, so a bit smaller than the Pottery Barn example, but still a decent size.
I think this car Christmas pillow definitely matches the original Pottery Barn version in terms of its fabric makeup, while still keeping the cost quite low – only $16.99 on sale. Low enough to invest in a couple of cars, in fact…for your sofa cushion, anyway. This pillow measures 10″ x 18″ and is ready to ship or to pick up at your local store.
If you don’t mind trading the rectangular lumbar pillow for a square toss pillow, then this version of the car Christmas pillow is another pretty good match to the Pottery Barn version above – and this one is only $14.99 right now (on sale). It measures 18″ x 18″ square.
