Fabric Pumpkin

Well an alternative to decorating with real pumpkins is to make some fake pumpkins..:) You can make fabric pumpkins or can even make paper pumpkins, which I showed here in this post.

To make fabric pumpkins, you'll need:
- A rectangle piece of fabric.
- Needle and Thread
- Batting to fill the pumpkin
- Twine

- Take the rectangle piece of fabric and with the right side up bring together the short edges together and stitch along the edges. (For my pumpkin, I cut the fabric out from a sleeve of one of the dresses, so this stitch was already done.)

- Still with the right side up, make a running stitch all along the edge of one of the open ends.

- and then pull the thread, so that the fabric at that end starts to come together. It will now look like a pouch.

- Flip the pouch right side out and stuff the batting in.

- Make the running stitch at the open end and pull the thread to close the pumpkin.
- Now take a twine and wrap around the pumpkin a few times to add ridges.

- For stem, I used a small stick which I found in the yard to stick in the middle.
