Fabric Pumpkin Tutorial



  Yay Fall is finally here! I've been enjoying walks in the crisp, cool mornings. Doesn't the sky seem bluer in the fall? Our leaves are slowly turning colors and pumpkins and mums are popping up everywhere. It all makes me so very happy! And has inspired me to put together a little tutorial for you.
 A few weeks ago I was playing around with making some fabric pumpkins. I thought they made a perfect weekend project...even the kids could get involved....if you have the patients for little helping hands in your craft room. Huhhumm...not always the case with me...I try but I'm often a lone crafter=).
Anyway...here it goes...
 
Things you need:
  • Fun fall fabric scraps cut into rectangles (I used a 17 x 8 inch piece...it just depends on what size you want your pumpkin)
  • Stuffing
  • Cinnamon sticks or twigs
  • Twine
  • Hot glue gun
  • Fabric glue
  • Needle & thread
  • sewing machine...though you could do it all by hand
  • Embellishments
 
 






 
I hope you enjoy a beautiful fall weekend filled with many of God's blessings!
Thank you for stopping by
Happy Creating!
Hugs,

Lunch Time!...Easy to make lunch sacks

 
Hello Folks! Just trying to get my feet wet with a new blog post. I'm working on a little tutorial for a cute fall project that I'll be posting soon. In the meantime I thought I'd share with you this quick and simple lunch sack. I found a great tutorial for it at Skip to my Lou.
These could even be used for reusable gift bags!
 
Thank you for stopping by...have a great day!
God Bless!
