Fall Address Pillow

Category: Decor

Sometimes it may be difficult to locate the address numbers on your home. If you incorporate them as an art applique on a pillow tucked in the rocking chair on your front porch they cannot be missed. To go one step further consider dressing up this simple pillow design with seasonal flowers attached to a pin and then the pillow stays put through the Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer.

Instructions

  • Fall Address Pillow

Step One

Cut one 17 inch square of chocolate brown canvas duck for the pillow front and  two 17 inch by 14 inch rectangles for the pillow back.

Step Two

Choose a font on the computer and print out patterns for the house numbers. Trace onto natural canvas backed with fusible web and cut out.

Remove paper backing from the cut outs and fuse to the pillow front.  Using a stitch on your machine stitch around the outside edge of each of the numbers.

Step Four

Baste piping to the pillow front.

Step Five

Create a double turned one inch along one of the 14 inch edges of each of the pillow back sections.

Step Six

Overlap the two pillow back sections and lay on top of the pillow front right sides together. Stitch using a 1/2 inch seam. Turn right side out and press.
