One of my favourite parts of the cooler weather is watching the leaves change colour. We are lucky to live in a rural area, with our own little ‘forest’ in our back yard. This pillow is inspired by the changing maple trees, and is a fun way to bring the outside in!
The background of the pillow is a simple white cotton twill. I appliqued leaves in a variety of colours in an oval shape. I used some poly felt, but fleece works very well too! At the center of the pillow is the word ‘autumn’. I cut the lettering from heat transfer vinyl, but I will also show you how to do out with freezer paper and fabric paint if you don’t have a cutting machine.
The back of the pillow is a simple envelope design so it is easy to insert the pillow form and even easier to sew! For a detailed step by step tutorial and free printable templates, click here!
