You've noticed, of course, the beautiful plush fabric pumpkins featured all over blogland, yes? Me too! And I want some!
So I started perusing google for how to make fabric pumpkins and when I found this picture, from this blog I knew I'd found my inspiration.
I started with an old shirt of Katie's and a dress that Maddie wore when she was little.
I followed Jamie's instructions and cut various rectangles that were twice as long as they were wide, so that when I folded one in half, it made a perfect(ish) square.
Next you put right sides together and sew the side opposite the fold closed.
From there it's a simple matter to gather one side with a running stitch, stuff that little guy, and then gather up the open end with another running stitch.
One more time, click here for some really detailed, great directions. The final step is to wrap your darling squash with yarn or embroidery thread to make the pumpkin sections.
Oh wait,the final final step is to pretend your pretty pumpkins are America's Next Top Models and do a photo shoot...
Look at these baby ones! I love them.
