Easy Peasy Cheery Pumpkin
I am getting the chance to play more with my materials from Fabric Elements! Today I picked my dot fabrics to create pumpkins. These cheery pumpkins are so easy to create. All that is needed are Fabric Elements dot fabrics which are sold in fat quarter size, available at JoAnn Fabric and craft stores both online and in store. Also available at limited Michaels stores. Simply cut one 12″ circle from each of the dot fabrics. Using a running stitch and strong thread (button thread) to stitch around 1/8″ from the raw edge of the fabric. Pull gathers slightly and fill the pumpkin with polyester fiberfil. Pull gathers tight and knot off. Tip: once pulled tight, make another stitch through fabric to secure. Tear green strips of dot fabric into 1″ wide lengths. Stuff green strip into the top hole of the pumpkin. Finish the pumpkin by gluing a stem (twig) into the center of the pumpkin. How about filling a basket full of pumpkins. Or, make a smaller size circle and use as a place setting marker.
And there is a giveaway! Check out the details here on the Fabric Editions website on how you can be a creative winner. I can’t wait to see what you create!!!
