My pillow ticking pumpkins were made from the comfort of my recliner, except for one trip to the kitchen to use my glue gun. I had to get a snack so I was going to be in there anyway...lol!
I wrapped my pillows in fabric using large safety pins to "tape my package together" ( The little pleat you see at the top is where I attached the stem to my pillow.)
I "bundled" the stem, a lace bow, and a spray of silk flowers together and attached it all at the same time with heavy duty thread and a long sculpting needle.
I used a fleece buffalo check fabric for two of the stems. Since fleece doesn't ravel, I just slip stitched my stem together. I didn't have any poly filling on hand, so I filled my stem with a Walmart bag...lol!
I used some wide burlap ribbon for one of the stems.....I just slip stitched this stem too.
I made one square pumpkin pillow and two small rectangle pumpkin pillow using black and cream ticking fabric.
I had a big piece of pink and cream pillow ticking that I wrapped a full size bed pillow in. When fall is over, I will just unwrap my pillow and use the pink ticking for another project.
The stem on this pillow is where my trip to the kitchen for a snack comes in! Cotton fabric ravels, so I hot glued this stem together and stuffed it with a Walmart bag.
I made all the pumpkin pillows in one evening from the comfort of my recliner
This was a fun and easy arm chair sewing project!
