Pumpkin Pillow

The design team was lucky enough to get to play along for fun in the Halloween Challenge!  Here’s a little tutorial on making a cute pillow with the satin cut-out ribbon (EX-28).

I started out by lining up the pumpkins to decide the size I wanted.


This helped me determine the size I wanted my pillow also.  I used felt I bought at Joanns (by the yard) & started with a square approx 9” x 9”.  I liked the pumpkins being in 7 rows of 7.

Next I pinned them in place.



I then sewed the pumpkins down & around the perimeter of the pumpkins- leaving an opening to stuff.



I also pinked the edges.  Then I stuffed it with poly-fil & stitched the opening closed.




Easy-peasy and super cute!!  I think I’ll make more pillows with the other satin cut-outs in the Halloween challenge kit!!!

What are you making?
