fall leaves pillow cover
You may have read in a previous post that I am SO ready for fall to get here. Here's a project I finished up today in anticipation of my favorite season! Oh, and plus I have a TON of fabric scraps that really need to be used for something.
This may not look like a lot of scraps to you, but trust me, this basket is stuffed almost beyond capacity!
A couple of months ago, I came across this pillow over at Cluck Cluck Sew and really wanted to do one of my own. So this week, I grabbed some fall-colored scraps out of my scrap basket and got to town.
I decided to make a pillow slipcover so that I could change it out easily and not have to worry about putting the whole pillow somewhere during other seasons. I also decided to use some of the canvas from the dropcloth I bought for this project, since I figured that would make a nice backdrop for the leaves.
I used iron-on adhesive to make the tree trunk and leaves stick to the canvas, and then sewed the edges to make sure they would stay put.
Then I just cut two pieces for the back and sewed everything together; I followed these directions over at Make It and Love It to get all the measurements right. And bonus: I got to use the hemmed edges of the dropcloth for the back pieces, so that let me skip the whole process of hemming them myself.
Once I was done, I turned it right-side out and stuffed my pillow form in. Done.
I really like how it turned out, especially because I didn't have to buy anything to make it. Always a good thing.
