You know I couldn't let fall go by without an autumn-themed pillow…and here it is! I love the vintage look of the graphic and the rustic combination of the muted green burlap and natural linen
…perfect contrast of colors and textures!

La Citrouille transfer At the heart of it all…this fabulous graphic that I found here at Vintage Printables…a wonderful source for vintage graphics! I added the French title (I can’t seem to resist doing that) and flipped it for you for use as an iron-on transfer.

Pumpkin Graphic I simply printed it on iron-on transfer paper and applied it to a scrap of linen. Next I raveled the edges and stitched it to the front of my burlap pillow cover. To save money, I made the back of Osnaberg…an inexpensive linen look-alike. I used an envelope-style closure (tutorial here) to allow me to reuse the down pillow form…under $3.00 from Goodwill. And…even better…I just take the cover off and put it away when the seasons change! Good deal because I was developing a huge pillow storage problem before I started making envelope closures! lol 

Ozzie CEO Our CEO Ozzie seems to approve and gives a nod to the corners as especially nice! :-)

Pumpkin Pillow And here it is! It cost absolutely nothing since I already had everything in my stash and I can use it all the way to Thanksgiving! Woo hoo! And next year I can even pull it out at the beginning of September to use! A seasonal pillow that I can use for three months…now that’s my kind of project!
