Pottery Barn Inspired Halloween Crow Pillow

I am excited to share my latest fall project with you…my Pottery Barn inspired Halloween crow pillow! I don’t know about you but I love crows! I think it may be left over from my favorite childhood book Johnny Crow’s Garden. However…this crow has a very different look!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT  Halloween Crow Graphic reversedAnd while mine, a vintage crow from The Graphics Fairy added to a checkerboard and tweaked a bit, is not quite as scary, he certainly helps to usher in the season!
Here’s what you will need:
  • Osnaberg fabric for the backing for the crow graphic
  • Crow graphic printed at 8x10 size on iron-on transfer paper (I use Avery brand iron-on transfers for light fabrics. I have already reversed it for you.)
  • Burlap for the pillow cover
