Fabric Pumpkin Tutorial

Fabric PumpkinsHere’s a quick project to get you in the Halloween mood:* Erin of Schlosser Design has a tutorial and downloadable pattern for making these cute fabric pumpkins.

It’d be fun to do a whole pile of these in different sizes and fabrics and use them as throw pillows or decorative accents. You could also fill them with plastic pellets instead of batting for a floppy beanbag pumpkin.

There’s lots of room for decorative excesses, too: Sew on buttons or charms, embroider pretty designs, use fabric paint or markers to give them jack-o’-lantern faces. Little personalized ones would make a cute hostess gift or wedding favor too.

Sigh. Is it Halloween yet? How about now?

Now?

Damn.

    I think I will give this a shot, my kids love pumpkins. Every year when the first little pie pumpkins come out I have to get a couple. I like the pie pumpkins best, I prefer their rich color to the more garish ones that come out later.
