Pocket full Pumpkins

I love my fat, orange & white pumpkins...all sizes all colors & even the funky bumpy ones.
I wish I had space to start my own pumpkin patch - really - that is a dream of mine
to have a farm that I can grow a year around crop...oh maybe one day.

In the mean time I have been busily making my own --- with fabric, needle & thread.

I decided to use a bunch of fabric scraps & material that I already had on hand.
Like this really fun corduroy in tan...

I also tried one using some vintage chenille bedspread in white.


These are made simply by cutting out a circle, then using a needle and thread to
run a straight stitch along the top of the circle pulling it closed adding
some beans or rice to the bottom for some stability then stuff it...


I wanted my pumpkins to have an authentic look to them so I added broken sticks
and some moss to the top and of course I added my own label...cute right and clever wouldn't you say.

Anyway, I am in the midst of creating some more fun pumpkins....happy crafting and thanks for visiting

I'm so non-crafty. I can't even be trusted with a glue stick, so I always admire people who have talent like yours! Your pumpkins are soooo cute!

Living on a compound and sharing the common space limits the ability to grow things. My son really want to try growing plants but we just do not have the space.
I like the craft idea and plan on doing some with my kids closer to halloween. Thanks for sharing and I am follow you now. I would appreciate a follow back.

Hi! I'm you're newest follower - I'd love it if you followed me back. These pumpkins are great and seem fairly easy to make, even for someone who has minimal experience sewing, like me, lol.
