Signs of the Season
For the Harvest Pumpkin Pillow, I used a primitive stitch using embroidery floss to affix the fabrics and create rustic effects.
The fringe along the edge was just a strip of fabric that I cut notches into to create a primitive fringe. I then sewed on the unfinished edge as shown.
The Witch Costume Pillow was a really fun one to make! I originally wanted to add a "wart nose" as well, but I had a hard time making it look right. Any suggestions?
Finally, the Signs of the Season Pillow was a combination of a few other pillows I wanted to make, but I ran out of garage sale pillow inserts! So, I put them all together and I love it (especially the bat)! I used fabric glue on the felt and added diamond eyes to give the bat a little something extra.
I pull these pillows out every Autumn and they always add that homemade touch to my seasonal displays!
