How to Sew Fabric Pumpkins- a quick & easy project for holiday decor!

How to Sew Fabric Pumpkins- Fast & Easy!I received such a great response to my Large Pumpkin Knitting Pattern (thanks, guys!) that I decided to make a version out of fabric. These fabric pumpkins take less than 15 minutes to make. They require no pattern and there’s minimal sewing involved.

This is a great project for making use of fabric remnants!

Supplies needed:

Fabric

Fiber fill

Yarn or twine

Felt (for leaves)

These pumpkins can be made in any size.  You want the size of your rectangle to measure roughly width= 2 times the height.

Fold your fabric over and sew the side seam.

To gather the ends of the pumpkin, you will need to use either a sewing machine or needle and thread. For heavier fabric (like the upholstery fabric I’m using), a large-eye needle and thread (on in the above picture, yarn) work best.

For thinner fabrics, like the orange silk pumpkin above, a baste stitch done a sewing machine is the easiest method.

Pull the thread to close the opening and knot.

Stuff with the pumpkin with fiber fill. Be sure to leave a few inches at the top so you can add a stitch to close it.

Take a long length of yarn or twine and fold in half. Criss cross over the pumpkin to create the ridges.

For the stem, I used a stick I found outside. Add a small amount of glue to the bottom of the stick and press on to the pumpkin. Use the ends of the yarn to hold in place.
