Last week, while shopping at Target, I noticed they had some really cute Halloween decor. I spotted a pumpkin pillow that I loved.
Here is the picture I took with my iphone. Yeah, I know it's a terrible shot.
Said pillow was only $9.99, but I already had a cart full of stuff
I didn't really need, so I thought I'd refrain from buying this pillow.
A few days later, the pillow was still on my mind. I thought of going back to Target to buy it, however, I knew that if I went back, I would most likely fill up my cart with stuff
I didn't really need, and thus begin the vicious cycle all over again.
Then I thought....hey, maybe I could make my own pillow!
I had cream colored fleece left over from when I made my Valentine's Day hearts. That's all I needed was some orange fleece & black embroidery floss. I bought a 1/4 yard of orange fleece & some embroidery floss & spent less than $2.00 to do so at Joanns. (It would have actually been less still had I not bought 3 rolls of embroidery floss. I'm such a bad judge of how much I need of something!)
Using this template and then free handing the eyes & mouth, I came up with this cutie.
