Pumpkin Pillows

I love chenille blankets and pillows, so I made these cozy, pumpkin face, pillowcases with remnants of a vintage chenille blanket. You can buy a set in my Sewsweetvintageco
Esty shop.how to make a jack-o-lantern, pumpkin, pillow case and pillow cover, with chenille and a dish towel
The smaller pumpkin pillow is a pocket pillow cover made with a $1 dish towel from IKEA.  It has a pocket opening on the back. 
The face is crafted with cotton fabric and iron on fuse it webbing. See how-to make a dish towel pocket pillow on Guidecentral.

Chrissy, of Adventures in DIY, who was so clever to make dish towel pillow covered pillows for her porch, inspired me to make a  pumpkin pillow cover (see below). 
Happy Halloween!
