October's One Monthly Goal: Finished!


I was late to the party with my start of this project, but so glad I budged in line and got caught up! I know, "budgers" are not well-respected folks, but when I speak of sewing projects and pushing one forward, it doesn't sound so bad. 

Bev, from Flamingo Toes, presented this free sew along at the end of September. Over the course of 3 weeks, she and her fun personality made it quite easy to put this pillow together. 

I hadn't done much raw-edge applique and her tips gave me the skills I needed to pursue a few other projects. (Blog posts coming!)

Trim on the back

such a sweet pumpkin!

the easy-open back even looks pretty!
