Free Fallin'

I love fall. Every year when September arrives, the weather gets cooler (hey, 90 degrees is cooler!), and the leaves begin to fall... I get the urge to raid the fall decor aisle at the local Hobby Lobby and cover every inch of my home with shades of orange, pumpkins, and gourds.

Today I was cleaning up my craft room and came across some scrap orange fabric and decided to put it to use...

I used flour sack towels for the body of the pillow and appliqued the pumpkin and felt stem. You can't see it, but I stitched some grooves into the pumpkin to add texture. It turned out cute, for a quick afternoon project - little G liked it so much, she took it to bed with her!

Next up... I'm feeling a candy corn pillow coming on.
