Fall Pillows

First off, don't pay any attention to the date on these pics. My camera has been throwing tantrums lately and when I changed the batteries, I didn't set the date. Technology, while I am grateful for it, sometimes it's a love/hate relationship. If your like me, it's just frustrating when it doesn't work the way I think it ought to.
I had a lot of fun making these FALL PILLOWS! My awesome friend Tricia is always doing something creative and sharing the ideas with me. The crafts are always so adorable that I just have to make them. She is so helpful that she'll spend the day creating with me. She found this idea on the creative blog Cluck, Cluck Sew!

Don't these just make you want to go jump into a pile of leaves?? :)

This ruffled one was a fun accent pillow to compliment the others.
I didn't take a picture of the backs of these, yet, if you check out the Cluck, Cluck Sew blog, you will see that she & we made the pillows like slipcovers, where they overlap each other in the back. This way we can change the pillows by Seasons or just a whim!! It's a girl thing & I ♥ it!!

Now, if you look closely, you will see that the first fall tree and this one are slightly different. I have a few couches and therefore needed a few pillows. After making these, I feel that I need more.. It's becoming an addiction.. kinda;)! The great thing is, most of us have a bit of scrap collection, of material, that we can use up.

I can see Christmas pillows, Winter pillows, Valentine pillows, Spring pillows, Summer pillows..... the list goes on!!
When I first put my new pillows out, I said to everyone that entered my home, "Did you see my cool pillows?". I had my kids & their friends looking at me like I was a bit of my rocker! Haha!
