Fall is officially here and I’m starting to see pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere! Today I’m going to show you how to make some easy-peasy fabric pumpkins. For me, the beauty of using fabric (besides the fact that I just plain love it) is that it comes in such a variety of colors, patterns, and textures. This is also a great project to use upcycled pieces, like the sweater I used to make the blue pumpkin shown here.
Wanna make some for yourself? Here’s how I did it:
Check out this fabric I found at a thrift store. I got @2 yards for something like $2! I just used some to make something for a friend and I thought it would make a sharp looking pumpkin.
After this step, stuff gathered fabric with polyfil or fabric scraps. Hot glue around base of stem, insert into the opening of the pumpkin, and pull thread taut. At this point I made a couple of tiny stitches to hold into place as well, then was able to snip my thread.
