how to make autumn pumpkins from fabric scraps

I successfully used up an assortment of scraps with this project, although I’d have to make several of these pumpkins for all my neighbors to make a dent in my tower of fabric!

Surprisingly, you need a very large circle to make a decent-sized pumpkin. I used a very large kitchen mixing bowl.

Friendly Note: 

Needless to say, my first attempt using a cereal bowl resulted in this teeny weeny [cute] pumpkin. Way too small for decor but my kids had a good time throwing it at one another!

Feel free to sew two pieces of fabric together to form one large piece to trace a circle shape onto. The seams will be hidden by the gathering and no one will ever know!


Enjoy your fun fall fabric pumpkins!
