Someone twittered about a new tutorial for creating a fabric pumpkin. I had just bought muslin fabric the night before. So while the kids worked on their math, I painted panels for the pumpkin and pulled out scraps to use as well. After painting (acrylic paint mixed with textile medium) and cutting, I sewed swirls and lines on the pieces for added texture.
The stem is a bit different from the instructions because I can't find my supply of felt. I think the fabric I used is the same as what was used to make the pillows my mom gave me for my birthday one year (she bought them at a store.) DD thought I cut up the pillow! lol
I think it turned out cute. I might make a bigger and a small one to have a grouping of them for the Thanksgiving table.
