Dropcloth Leaf Pillow

Fall is here. The leaves are stunning and we are enjoying the warm days and cool nights. To help bring some more fall into our home I whipped up this pillow for our living room.
My mom gave me a TON of orange corduroy, I've been thinking of lots of projects to use it on.
I found a clip-art of a maple leaf, then printed off and enlarged it as big as I needed it.  The pillow case needed to be at least 20 inches square.
For the main fabric I used washed drop cloth. Once the drop cloth is washed, it becomes very soft. I sprayed the corduroy with spray adhesive, then stitched it to the pillow case.  While watching a few shows I embroidered around the edges.
Happy Fall!
