Fabric Pumpkin Tutorial with Guiseppa

Good Saturday morning!  Guiseppa here and I want to share with you a simple way to make some cute fabric pumpkins!  

You will need:
fabric circles (mine are 9, 11 and 16 inches, but you can do what you want)
small sticks
batting or dried beans
paper leaves (optional)
mini curls (optional)
anything you would like to use to embellish your pumpkins

First, cut out your circles.  I used Samantha's Decadence Fabric from Riley Blake Designs.  This fabric is just perfect for Fall projects.

Use a gathering stitch around the outer edge of the fabric circle to bring the fabric into a ball.  Do this all the way around the circle.

Make sure you don't completely gather and tighten the fabric together.  Leave an opening to insert the batting.

Once the batting is all in, stitch and knot your gathers so they don't come loose.  Leave just enough room to insert and glue a small stick in for a stem.  

Embellish your pumpkins with anything else you'd like.  I added leaves from Samantha's Card: Leaves Shape.

Go ahead...give it a try!  It's so fun and easy to do 
and a perfect is a perfect piece of Fall decor!
