Autumn Burlap Pillow

This fall pillow gives you all the colors of autumn, even if you live in Florida, as I do.  The fabric selection for this season is just remarkable! A trip down  the aisles of my favorite sewing store reminds me of our drives down the Blue Ridge Parkway in October. I can almost smell piles of leaves burning.

You can make this pillow in a very short time.  Working with burlap is a drastic  change in gears from heirloom and the burlap rose was fun. Every burlap flower I researched online required hot glue and I did not want that.  So this is my version of a no-glue posy.  Detailed instructions are in the post at Brother’s Stitching Sewcial blog.

This sturdy pillow can bring fall colors to the outdoors as shown above or it can enrich the colors in your home.  By changing the print fabric on the sash, you could make this a Halloween pillow.  Then swap the sash to fall fabric after Oct. 31.

It  reminds me of Halloweens past with my children’s and grandchildren’s goofy costumes, of huge Thanksgiving dinners with family and friends, of fall festivals at church,  of tailgating Gator football games, and fall festivals.   So many memories of this season…..
