A Plethora of Pumpkins!

Lisa Spangler has a tutorial this morning on her blog and also on the Lawn Fawn Blog, showing how to make cute little felt pumpkins.  I thought I'd share my fabric pumpkins, made very similarly, that I've been making for many years.


They are about 4" in width for the larger ones, and 3" for the smaller ones.  At this time of year, they are scattered all over the house.


And here's another one that was made by a friend of mine.  It started out as dryer vent, some silk leaves and a cinnamon stick!   It's about 7 or 8 inches wide, isn't it something?!

  15. Before I read your post I thought you'd made all these since seeing Lisa's post - but even you would struggle to make them all in one day Lin (though I wouldn't be surprised if you did!). They are just fab Lin - so pretty, lovely fabrics and love the raffia bows. And how fantastic is that air vent pumpkin - so clever!
