Finally! Finally! Finally! I have been meaning to post my video for this for 3 weeks! It’s long, it’s detailed…it’s all yours. This is an old craft, sure Martha Stewart did it a few years ago, but she certainly wasn’t the first one! And I’m certainly not the last! But! This is my own method, gleaned from lots of different methods. And I hope you enjoy!


x-small pumpkin: two pieces of fabric 4″ x 2.5″
small pumpkin : two pieces of fabric 6″ x 5″
medium pumpkin : two pieces of fabric 7.5″ x 6″
large pumpkin : two pieces of fabric 11″ x 9″

The width is the first number, it is longer than the height. But you can make these any size you want! Just make them a rectangle and you’re good to go. The small pumpkin measures approx. 3.5″ wide and 2″ tall when finished, to help give you a gauge.

I love making these because once you’ve sewn the sides together with the machine (you can do it by hand if you don’t have a machine) you can do the rest of the craft snuggled up in front of a movie! Or in my case season 5 of Buffy.

    These pumpkins are adorable! I am getting married the day after Halloween so I am using pumpkin decor and I am going to make these for my escort card holders. Your video was very easy to follow and very informative. Thanks for the great idea!!

  14. Erin:

    SO cute, love the idea! While watching your tutorial I thought when you were running the yarn for the sections you could use a button on the bottom to keep the yarn from coming through. Just an idea :)
