I have been a very busy girl. Last year it was aprons, and this year, well it’s pumpkins. I am loving them. I happen to love Fall and the colors associated with the season. The pumpkins I have been making are made from repurposed wool sweaters, and stuffed with rice and plastic grocery bags, and topped with bits of fallen branches from our yard. I was inspired by a post by The Country Chic Cottage seen here. From her idea, I came up with these.
1 of those discontinued home decorator samples at JoAnn's makes 2 cute size pumpkins. they measure 17in x17in so by cutting the piece in half 81/2 by 17 you can sew up the short side, hand gather one of the long sides turn it right side out fill with rice and then recycle those plastic grocery bags to fill, hand gather the top and hot glue a tree branch stub, and TADAA, an adorable pumpkin to use in your fall decorating!
