For this month's Blog Hop the Creative Team has 

been working with a Fall into Fabric theme and I have created a fall pumpkin using Samantha's Saddle Up collection with Riley Blake!


Supplies:
Fabric: 
Twine: Cappuccino (The Twinery)
Other: Twig, Jute, and Hot Glue

Tutorial:
  1. Cut two 5" circles
  2. Place the two pattern sides together
  3. Sew around the edges
  4. Leave a 1" opening for stuffing
  5. Turn the circles inside out so the pattern fabric is showing.
  6. Your circles should look like this photo.
  7. Cut two leaf forms
  8. Place the two pattern sides together
  9. Sew around the edges
10. Leave a small opening
11. Turn the leaf inside out so the pattern fabric is showing.
12. Tuck the opening in and sew around the edges then add a stitch down the center of the leaf.
13. Use newspaper or fiber fill to stuff the circles.
14. Hand stitch the edge of the circle closed.
15. With a 30" piece of twine, tie a knot at the end of the string and then take the twine up through the bottom center of the pumpkin form.
16. Go down one side then back up through the center, pulling the twine firmly to create a section.
17. Continue creating different sections as directed in step 16.
18. Attach the leaf with the twine and then adhere a twig with hot glue.  Add twine to decorate the twig.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
