Since I'm not a huge fan of Halloween, pumpkins and crows are my favorite motifs to decorate with for fall. Over the weekend I got the itch to do a couple needlepunch projects when I was looking through some old issues of Create & Decorate magazine.
This is the first one I did, and I turned it into a boxy little pillow by adding a fabric border and following the tutorial that Janet at Rogue Quilter shared awhile ago. The pattern had a checkerboard border around the pumpkin, but I added tongues instead.
I made this crow with the suggested border - using the same boxed pillow format.
After I got those two made, I pulled out my box of decorations and found this project that I had made a year or two ago - I like the needlepunched pumpkin mixed with wool applique crow.
And this appliqued pumpkin is sweet too, with a three dimensional leaf left floppy.
