Harvest Circle Felt Leaf Pillow

I am definitely into decorating for holidays and seasons not using the typical seasonal colors!  I wanted a harvest feeling pillow that would last me from September through Thanksgiving for my living room.  Instead of using the typical orange, yellow, brown, and red colors I coordinated the pillow to my living room.  I purchased a warm rustic green linen colored fabric and shades of white felt for the leaves. I ordered two packs of these felt leaves from Etsy.  They are taupe, ivory, and white and three different shapes.    

I pinned the first layer of felt leaves in a circle and then using different color thread to match each color of felt I sewed the leaves on to the pillow where the veins would be on a leaf.

After I finished sewing the first layer, I pinned a second layer and sewed, and a third layer and sewed. Sewing on the final layer was a little difficult because it was getting thick.  But that is what I wanted - lots of texture.

After I finished sewing on the felt leaves I finished sewing the pillow.  I used a 20" pillow form for this pillow.

Is the pillow pretty?  I just love how it turned out.  I love the texture of the layers of leaves and the pillow fabric.  It is the perfect fall addition to my living room.
