Welcome to the May Arts blog today! I’ve got a fun fall project to share! Who wouldn’t love a candy corn pillow to celebrate the season?
It’s pretty simple, and uses limited supplies. I’ve used craft store felt- I had some I’d bought by the yard, but I cut it down to the sheet size for this project. Simply draw a candy corn shape- don’t worry about being perfect!!
Cut out 2 pieces the same size.
Here’s where the fun starts! Pic out your white, orange & yellow ribbon! I’ve used LOTS of different ribbons, but you could easily use some wide grosgrain, silk, or satin if you want to speed the process up!
I pinned my pieces into place in several areas.
I sewed them to the felt with coordinating thread.
I pinned the right sides together.
I machine sewed them together, leaving room to stuff. I also trimmed the excess ribbon.
After I stuffed the pillow with poly-fill I hand-sewed it closed.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ve been inspired!
