Hello Fall (ing apples)



So it's another pillow from me! (hope you dear readers aren't getting to bored of seeing them!). Our house renovations will be done this week and I wanted a cute fall pillow for our living room so I made a hello to  fall(ing apples) pillow!
It is made in the same fashion as my other pillows (owl pillow - free pattern pieces, whale game pillow )

I remember being a kid and eating crab apples off the tree and I love the crisp red against the natural background - it reminds me perfectly of fall!

First off pin the felt stems and leaves I stitched the stems by hand since they are kind of tiny for the machine.


Then pin on the apples. and stitch around the apples and then put in your green thread, stitch the leaves down with one line down the center and then a line going up to the top (I think it helps with looking like they are actually falling)


Here's a close up of the stitching 


On the back I used a orange thread for hemming the back flaps to tie in the fall look of the front. 


What have you been making for the fall?
