Easy To Sew Pumpkins Tutorial
I’ve gone a little bit pumpkin mad this autumn.
Having returned from a trip to New England recently, I can see why pumpkins mean autumn for lots of people.
I actually don’t like eating them very much (although pumpkin spice latte is delicious!), but I love the orange and their lovely squashy shape! My boys dismissed my suggestion of having pumpkin shaped cushions as weird, so I’ve restricted myself to making small ones.
How to Make Easy To Sew Pumpkins
You Will Need
Fabric scraps in pumpkin colours (I got this bag of remnants from Ebay. This is an affiliate link), strong thread or sewing thread doubled, a needle, ribbon, rice or barley or nut shells, polyester filling.
How To Make
1. Draw round a bowl onto the wrong side of the fabric. For smaller pumpkins you could use something smaller than a bowl, and for larger pumpkins use something larger. You could use a plate, or for much bigger pumpkins, a bucket.
4. Pull the threads some more so that there is a small hole at the the top. Push some polyester filling in through the hole. This is to give the pumpkin a round and squishy shape.
