Pick a Pumpkin Blog Hop!


A big thanks to Carla for bringing us this blog hop! Here's the list of today's participants:

Monday, November 5th

****************************************

When I saw the theme for this hop, I instantly knew what I wanted to make. A couple of years ago, I participated in another hop called "Summer Sensations." I created a pillow named "Strawberry Season" (the .pdf pattern is still available in my Etsy and Craftsy shops).


I've wanted to do another version of the pillow, one for a different time of the year, and this hop provided the perfect opportunity to do just that! I'm calling the pillow "Pumpkin Time," and here's what it looks like:

Pillow back:


It's a cotton pillow that measures approximately 14" round, and approximately 8" thick when stuffed. The pumpkin medallion is appliqued in WoolFelt, and it is attached to the front of the pillow with button embellishments. The pillow is easy and quick to make, and the applique part is only a bit more involved than the pillow itself.


If you'd like to make it, the .pdf pattern is now available in my Etsy and Craftsy shops)

  32. I love the pillow Elizabeth, even the fabrics, give that good old-fashioned homey look, that says I'm at home, I love it here. Perfect. Where did you ever find a pillow form to fill it... I love circular pillows.

  33. Elizabeth, I love the pillow. It screams autumn, Halloween, and Thanksgiving - all the autumn(ness) of the year. The scream is subtle enough to not push out other yearly products. The wood chair is the perfect place for the pillow.

  36. What a terrific remake of your strawberry project. It's hard to choose which I like better..... I'd probably have to make them both and rotate them! :)
