Fabric Mushrooms for Romantic Fall Decor

During autumn, we have a plethora of both toadstools and mushrooms popping up in the gardens around our home.

We live in a rainforest, so the moist floor of the forest is littered with decomposing plant material, therefore providing a perfect environment for fungi to grow.

In a place where we don’t typically have a lot of change between the seasons, those first mushrooms are nature’s way of letting us know that cooler nights are on the way.



When I saw a pattern for fabric mushrooms in Tilda’s book, Fairytale Wonderland by Tone Finnanger, I knew I had to make some for my autumn decor…. aren’t they pretty!!

Of course, as is always the way, I didn’t end up using the pattern in the book.

The Tilda pattern was for a fat, squat little mushroom…. and that’s not what I was visualising.



Instead, I wanted my mushrooms to be like the ones that popped up in my garden….. sort of tall and thin.

So I designed my own pattern and made them using the same technique used in the book.



My pretty Tilda fabrics that I used to made my pumpkins were perfect for mushroom caps too.

You can get my Pumpkin pattern here.

This fabric collection is ‘Happiness is Homemade’ by Tilda.

I think the muted tones of green and pink are perfect for autumn…. don’t you?



The green mushroom in the rear of the above photo is the original pattern by Tilda.

The three taller mushrooms in the cup are my taller version.

I’m sure you will see them popping up occasionally in my fall photos.

The Tilda Fairytale Wonderland book contains 25 charming sewing and papercraft designs including gifts, decorations, toys and home accessories.

I’m providing these direct affiliate links for purchasing Tilda’s Fairytale Wonderland from Book Depository (free worldwide shipping) and Amazon.

Of course you know I love all of the Tilda books…. this is one of the later ones, so the instructions are much easier to understand than the early books that were translated from Norwegian.

  1. What a super addition to your Autumn décor.
    The colours in your fabrics are so pretty.
    Toni xx

  2. Such a cute and creative idea ♥ The mushrooms are pretty ♥


  3. So sweet! A unique idea. thanks for sharing.

  4. You have most likely told us about the Tilda books and fabric but please bear with me – can I get newer Tilda books or any of older Tilda books?And is Tilda fabric available in US? Hopefully if available here I can afford it, same with books.
    Your mushrooms are so darned cute, love fabrics you used, certainly do suit your mushrooms. Looks like maybe making heads of mushrooms requires bit of finessing. You are skilled seamstress from what I have seen on several of your delightful projects.
    Hope you are having wonderful week.

    • Hi Jane Ellen,
      If you click on the links I provided, they will have all the Tilda books available. Alternatively, you can search for books by Tone Finnanger and all her books will come up. The Tilda products are not sold in the US, but can be purchased online. The little mushrooms are super easy and just basic sewing. They don;t take very long to make either… just two seams and some stuffing! Have a great week sweetie xx

  5. Wow the mushrooms are so adorable. What a fantastic cute idea.
