Autumn Pumpkins Pillow - Wool Applique...



This was a very fun piece to make to celebrate Autumn !
I have hand pieced these pumpkins from felted wool.
Many of the shades have been hand dyed.  The pumpkins have been blanket stitched onto soft 100% wool.









Each pumpkin has been hand embroidered using a variety of different stitches.  The design is embellished with glass beads and crystals.




Both of the pillows edges are trimmed in a Glass Beaded Blanket Stitch.
Each of the Pumpkin Pillows measure 14in. x 18in. (35.56cm x 45.72cm)

Rich, Spicy Pumpkins...Happy Autumn !

    Do you have a storefront in Pa? Or just online? Always looking for another great place to purchase wool! I'm just up the road.

    Thanks,
