This fun pillow pattern called is called Esmerelda!  She easy to make and we have kits ready to ship if you want to make her just as you see it!  She only takes a couple of hours to stitch and three threads…I made her into this pillow using this awesome Houndstooth Flannel!  We also have an option if you wish for us to print the pattern.

Oh..I almost forgot…there is a bonus…if you carefully cut out Esmerelda’s facial features you can add them to another piece of wool for another pumpkin!  You will need a piece of wool for a pumpkin and stone wool for the stem and fabric for the back.

I also made another pattern for Fall…I know you all loved the We Three Gnomes, so I decided to make a Halloween version called Frightful Gnomes.I love stitching up these fun little projects and remember just because I am pillow obsessed doesn’t mean you have to make yours into a pillows…these can be wall hangings or framed pieces as well!
