A Cute Fall Decoration.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Mine has been busy. I know that it is quite late in the season but I wanted to show you a cute decoration for fall. I purchased this kit at the last quilt show that I went to. It's a quick project that is easy to make.

You need :

a fat quarter of fabric

a brown lunch bag

a roll of toilet paper

enough batting to wrap around roll

small piece of jute

artificial leaves

Roll and twist lunch bag and wrap with jute. Wrap toilet paper roll with batting (not to puffy). Set it in the center of the fat quarter right side down. Draw the short sides of the fat quarter up and hold in place. Take the longer of the ends and tuck them into center of roll. Push lunch bag into center and lastly add leaves into center. Place it on the back of your toilet or any place that you would like. Enjoy!

I will chat later.

Hi, Pat! Thanks for coming by the blog. I fully intend to read yours. .. it's all about quilting, and that speaks my language.

One little note - and I intend to update the blog about this. The last time I made the brown sugar cookies, I used real butter instead of shortening. This time, I used shortening.

I think I prefer the "butter" version. *(go figure)

Thanks for coming by! Can't wait to read more of your blog!!
