By now you all know of my love of acorns. Well, I got this idea in my head for a pillow, and I had to leave the Halloween projects behind this weekend to make this...
I l.o.v.e. this pillow. It was relatively easy to make, too. Once I took the time to draw out my design and write down a list of each piece of fabric that I needed to cut, things moved along rather quickly. The squares are from Saltbox Harvest by Moda Fabrics. I love this collection of colors and prints. Each fabric perfectly captures fall.
The acorn patch in the center is linen with four little green buttons sewn on with mustard embroidery floss. The acorn itself is wool felt. This is, of course, my favorite part of the pillow.
I love the fabric on the back, too. It ties in all of the colors from the front. It has an envelope closure so you can easily remove the 16" x 16" pillow form.
And I added another one of my little homemade tags.
This pillow turned out better than I ever could have imagined. I really do love it. It's a perfect celebration of fall!
