September Craft 1 of 3!

THREE posts in one day.  Can you believe it?  I've labeled them September Crafts 1 of 3, 2 of 3, and 3 of 3 so I hope you take time to check them all out and leave a comment or two......or three :)

This was a simple project but I loved how it turned out.  Cute fabric goes a long way.  I had some  adorable fall fabric in my stock and, like every year, I love making holiday pillows to add a little flair to my decor.  While shelves, tables, mantles and desks frequently receive all the decorations, the poor couch is often overlooked.  Not anymore.  These little gems bring fall right into my living room.

To make them, I cut pieces of fabric in coordinating  patterns and stitched them together to resemble the lay out of, you guessed it.....candy corns.  I top stitched the pillows, stuffed them with batting and sewed them shut.  The rectangle was added just to mix it up a bit.  Everything can't be about candy corn.......or can it?  :)

Here's a close up of the adorable vintage looking Halloween fabric I've had for a couple of years.  The scrap at the top and bottom came from a remnant I happened upon at Wal-Mart and fell in love with.  The clerk told me it wasn't even supposed to be on the floor.  She assumed it was left over from their old stock from a few years back.  But she sold it to me for next to nothing and I have been loving it!  Happy Fall, Happy Harvest, Happy Halloween or Happy Whatever You Celebrate this time of year!!!
