Pear Art

 I've been working on a bunch of different projects this week, that I hope to have completed by turkey day.  One of which was this Pear Art for my kitchen.  I wanted an inexpensive way to add art to an empty wall.


 I used a pear stencil found here. I also used leftover fabric scraps and leaf that I was using as a vase filler.  Once I cut my stencil out, I used it as a guide to trace over my fabric. I added a second leaf to the pear by cutting a small piece off the vase filler.  Using my sewing machine, I stitched the pear to a square piece of fabric.

I found a frame not being used in the garage, that I thought went well with my fabric.  I'm slowly getting the hang of my sewing machine and little projects like this make great practice.
