DIY Pottery Barn Gus the Ghost Pillow
Pillow form (mine was 20 inches)
Felt for the eyes
Needle & thread
Fabric pumpkin- make sure it is lightweight (the crochet pattern for the one I used is here)
Take the top corners of the pillow, bring them around the back and knot them together.
This is what the pillow should look like with the top corners knotted in the back.
Place the sherpa fabric on top. You may have to cut it to fit.
Sew the fabric to the pillow form at the top so it doesn’t fall off.
Cut the eyes out of black felt. Sew or glue them on.
Sew the pumpkin to the front of the ghost so it looks like he is holding it.
As you put the final stitches in your ‘Gus the Ghost’ pillow and step back to admire your handiwork, take a moment to revel in the satisfaction of creating something that’s both adorable and uniquely yours. This charming ghostly addition to your Halloween decor will surely bring smiles and laughter to all who encounter it.
