Spooky Halloween Pillows

I’m one lucky gal! Last week, my parents were in town and my mom (the most talented seamstress I know) and I were on a mission to craft it up! While I worked on the candy corn onesie, she whipped up these wonderful and whimsical pillows for me! We had made a trip to our local quilting shop, Quilters Paradise in Clovis, CA. I instantly fell in love with this print called “Haunted House” by Alexander Henry. I love the illustrations and they have a very funky/cool retro vibe! In fact, all of the Alexander Henry Halloween fabrics were just divine. It was so hard to choose! I paired this pattern up with the “Spooktakular Too” polka dot print by Debbie Taylor Kerman for Henry Glass Fabrics. Sewed up with pom pom trims in black and orange, I think they turned out absolutely darling.

Here’s some more cute details!

Everytime I see a black cat, I’m drawn. I have a warm spot because of my black cat Pixie.

It’s true, pom poms make everything better. My new kitten agrees. Let’s hope he doesn’t tear these up!

I love the detail of the illustration down to her striped sleeves and wart on her chin!

Here’s another view! I paired it up with my font tablecloth/makeshift slipcover. Last year, my friend Silvia helped me decorate my living room (blogged here)and gave me the idea to use the tablecloth this way. I think it’s genius!

Thanks Mom for the darling pillows. I absolutely love and cherish them!!

Until next time Swellions!
