It's Fall Y'all!

There's no more denying it.

This was my Saturday project:


I used my pattern for the Street Scene pillow.

Here's the trick for fussy cutting.
Make a template frame with an opening the desired size of your finished section. I taped two pieces of card stock together.
Move this around on your fabric until you find a "picture" you like.
Use a disappearing marker to trace along the inside of the template. Remove the template and cut the fabric 1/4" outside the marked lines.

(Center and border fabrics are from the Farmyard collection. Red and green sashings are Wee Woodland stripes.)

Pin It!

Thank you for sharing the tip about using a template. I'm going to start doing that. It looks like it will be alot easier then trying to eyeball it with a ruler, like I am doing now. You always have the best tips and make my sewing easier! Thanks!
