Fabric Pumpkins

My sister-in-law brought the directions for making these fun and easy fabric pumpkins.  We turned out whole patches of them before the week-end was over.  Some for us and some for gifts. 
Originally she started with the traditional orange and white...
 Since my week-end was pretty crazy -- I didn't get nearly as much time to craft as I'd have liked to.  About an hour before "bedtime" Saturday night I  got out some country/primitive material that I had and sewed some up in that.  I used four different sizes of circles just for variety's sake.
Above is my basket of primitive/country pumpkins. Besides using the country fabrics I also used some muslin and burlap.
Sunday afternoon - after our "other" company left and the mountain of dishes was finished I made soem more little pumpkins for gifts.  Below is set I made for a friend - I tried to match the colors of her decor with them.
 Here's a link to the tutorial if your interested in making a patch of your own! They're easy, lots of fun, and quick to whip up.  
Happy Crafting!

I've seen a few versions of these online, but none of them made me want to go make some of my own until I saw yours. :) Yours are, by far, the nicest I've seen. Great job!
