Halloween Pillows!

Sometimes I need a break and I do something simple, just for fun.
That is what I did for the last few days. I made some pillows and did some sewing on my hexagons.
The pillows are patterns from Primitive Blessings and fun to do up in all different sizes.
Pillows are a great way to decorate for the holidays and something quick, simple and inexpensive.
I used moda tea stained fabrics, from the light to the darker shade. I didn't antique them, this time.
I used DMC pearl #12 in the small balls and use a coupon, so the cost is just background fabric and floss.
If you have light colored floral fabrics, those are fun to use as backgrounds too.
The basket is a thrift store find. That is a great place to look for old baskets and boxes to hold your prim goodies.

Those are so fun! And, a collection of them in a basket would be the best!

Those are great pillows! They would look nice stitched on a dark fabric with orange & gray threads too. :)

This really looks good. Good enough that something similar will be sitting in the fireplace of the cottage soon :-)
