Fall Pillow TalkLet’s talk pillow talk…..

Now your’re wondering….really….can pillows talk?  The answer is YES!

Look at it closely…..what is it saying to you……

To me it’s saying “It’s time for FALL” ……and PUMPKIN PIE and COOLER WEATHER……yes cooler weather is on the way………

Cooler weather would be nice since it’s only 98 today here in Texas….

I made an envelope picture case with this fabulous vintage pumpkin on front….The pumpkin is a copy of a label for canned pumpkin from many years ago…….

found it at “The Graphics Fairy” blog.  They have all kinds of vintage images you can download.  Go check them out….here’s the link for the pumpkin….

First I printed  the pumpkin out on transfer paper using my color ink jet printer.

Following the instructions on the transfer package…. I press the transfer onto a white cotton material.  Then I trimmed it, allowing enough space along the edge to sew on the material instead of the transfer itself…..

I like using the envelope pillow pattern.  Makes for easy storing….

Just remove the pillow case…..store in a drawer…..and pull out the next beautiful pillow case for the next upcoming season or holiday….no fuss….no hassle….

I bought a 16 x 11 inch pillow form from Hobby Lobby …..

To make Envelope Pillow covering:  Need to cut one 18 inch by 13 inch for the front of the pillow and cut two 9 inch by 18 inch for the back.  Along the long side of the 2 pillow backs….sew a nice edge……

Now pin pumpkin face down to wrong side of front pillow piece….

Now sew in place……

Turn over and cut out a little window over the pumpkin……

#14

Open up about 1/4 inch from edge of seam…..like shown in picture…..

fray the edges by pulling on the fibers…..

Now it’s time to sew back and front together…..

Now add the pillow form ……

Yep….this pillow is talking…..I can almost smell Pumpkin Pie!
