I love fall and pumpkins and this is a simple sweater to Pumpkin craft tutorial.
With a hand needle and some yarn or floss or beading twine in my case, sew a running stitch to pull the bottom closed. I have a hefty bottom seam because I found two moth holes near the bottom and I want to hide them.
Cinch the bottom closed, turn inside out and stuff . I used lots of the left over wool scraps and serger shreds from my serger catch-it bag. I did use some poly fill to “fill in” and smooth out the lumps.
I found the only green wool/felt scraps I had and made two leaves and added a running stitch up the middle to create a vein. I wish I had a darker green for the leaves, but I haven’t found a green wool sweater that I can felt. Oh well!
My cluster of fabric pumpkins. Please note the pumpkin with the face. Two years ago my youngest son digitized the face and sewed the pumpkin together on my treadle machine. He stuffed it with the plastic grocery bags and did not close the opening, so you could use the bags or store more in it! Pretty clever kid!
