In my falling for fall mood, I just had to create some pumpkins!
I’ve seen them made all kinds of way in my short life and figured I would just throw some together.
One of my goals was to use up fabric I have because our move made me realize I have way more than I need and I need to utilize what I have whenever I can instead of buying more. I was very happy that I had some fall like fabrics to make this work (or they might not have come out the way I wanted them to).
My daughter immediately took to them (as she does anything I make). She has already taken them to several stores and to our friends house who so graciously watched her last night so the hubby and I could go on a date.
I began with them on the fireplace and soon after the picture was done, she began to move them around.
Next, they went to the floor…..
then the coffee table……
then…well, they just went everywhere. That is when I decided these would be playful pumpkins. So, for those of you who want to make some real quick fabric pumpkins yourself, here is how I made them:
Grab some fabric and cut them into rectangles. The long side will make it more scrunched up looking the longer you make it, and the short sides will be the approximate height.
Fold them in half long ways, right side facing, and sew the short sides together. You could hand sew it or even glue gun it if you wanted.
Now baste and gather the end that will be the bottom. I used a needle and thread, but you could baste it with a sewing machine too.
