I’m On a Pumpkin Kick, Can You Tell?

gourds
I bought some gourds and pumpkins to mix in with the fabric pumpkins that I’m making this month so I thought I’d take some pics of just the pumpkins themselves. They are photo worthy, too.
Then I threw in some sunflowers my sister had in a vase.
Fabric Pumpkin
Here’s the fabric pumpkin. Michele, the girl that I met in Joann’s last week that took an interest in my blog and helped me pick out fabrics, well, she convinced me that this fabric would be darling and she was right. It’s one of my most favorite fabric pumpkins so far. Thanks, Michele.

Isn’t that tiny orange pumpkin cute?
To make these fabric pumpkins, I cut a circle out of fabric and make a large stitch along the edge of the circle. When you get to the end,
PULL
until you have a small circle hole in the middle.
Then I just stuff it and close it up with a few stitches. That’s it. Oh, I throw in a stick and a few artificial leaves to round it out and make it look more like a pumpkin.
It’s like making a very large fabric yoyo, but then stuffing it instead of laying it flat.

Same exact premise, only bigger and you stuff it.
 Super EASY!!
Which is why I want to keep making them. I get like that sometimes. I just want to keep making the same thing…until I get sick of it, that is. It doesn’t happen for a while and usually it’s because I start making something ELSE. :)
Happy Pumpkining, everyone.
