Fabric Pumpkins

I've seen a few versions of these around and pinned them on my fall boardI had some left over fabric so I decided to give it a try.



I started by laying out my fabric.


I traced a circle using a pizza pan.  Since I wasn't sure what size this would make my pumpkin, I decided to cut out my circle going about 2 inches outside of my traced circle.
 


The other tutorials I've seen used yarn but I didn't have any so I used thread.  Make sure you cut your string long enough to go through the entire length of the circle perimeter.  Leave the top open enough to add batting or if you don't have any (like me), use more fabric.

 
After filling, pull your string tight and tie it off with a knot.

Now it's time for the stem.  I didn't have any on hand, but I had plenty of empty paper towel rolls.  The kid likes to save those for her art projects.  I cut one short enough to look like a pumpkin stem.  I rolled it up, glued it shut, and glued it to the top of my pumpkin.


I grouped it together with the other pumpkins on the table.


Kind of cute and modern with the chevron print.  A nice touch to the table.
