Things you will need for this cute pumpkin:
Start with your favorite fabric. Cut it into a square, any size you like, the bigger the square, the bigger the pumpkin. I used 10x10, 20x20, and 28x28 for different sized pumpkins. Fold your square in half, then in half again, and cut a rounded edge on the open sides as shown
Cutting in this manner will give you a circle. Once you have a circle take a needle and strong thread, or even embroidery thread as I used here, and do a single running stitch around the edge of the circle. When you're done, pull the stitch and the circle will start to look like a shower cap.
At this point, you can begin to stuff your pumpkin.
Once it's stuffed you'll want to pull the thread pretty tight, but leave an opening for your stem you will add in a few minutes. Now you will make stitches around the opening, creating a square, still leaving the center open for your stem. Once you have stitched the square you'll want to take the needle down through the center and the middle of the bottom of the pumpkin, then loop the thread back to the top and do it again. You'll do this four times and that creates the pumpkin "ridges" on the sides of the pumpkin.
When you finish this, make a couple of small stitches at the top to secure the thread in place and cut the excess. Now it's time to hot glue your stem in place. Take the piece of wood, add hot glue, and stick it in the hole you left in the center at the top and hold to dry. Add embellishments as you please. I used Spanish moss on this one.
Add the embellishments and you'll end up with the cutest little pumpkin you ever did see!
I sure hope you make some of your own! Please share them with us in the "Crafting with that Farm Charm Group" on Facebook if you do!
Until next time!
