Simple Sewing: Pretty Pumpkins

A slight correction if you are a beginner: pull up the threads only slightly, stuff, and then pull up the threads tightly to close the opening and secure the end.

These are nice, and unlike real pumpkins they won't go bad. With a yard of fabric you might be able to make all whole pumpkin patch. These could be achieved by anyone even someone sewing for the first time and need not cost much. And how nice it is that you don't have to be "rich" to add seasonal touches throughout a home. And children really like to see the house decorated, even if they don't make comment to such.

Batting could be glued to the core of those thread rolls before you add the decorative fabric. I saved a whole bunch of those because I kept thinking they could be made into something, but hadn't come up with anthing yet. These would make a nice size little pumpkin to fill a basket, or to give as a gift.

Have you seen the fall leaf themed items in Dollar Tree, china plates, china bowls, placemats, vinyl tablecloths and kitchen towels? Also the Walmart near us which discontinued their fabric section, now has some precut fabrics in serval fabric types for around five dollars.
You are spoiling us with all your recent posts. Keep them coming. I am excited about seeing what you will be putting up for Christmas. God has truly blessed you to bless us.
