SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Sewing Machine
  • Scissors
  • Thread
  • Ball Head Pins
  • Long needle
  • Iron
  • Fabric: 1/4 yd each
  • Poly-fil Ultra Plush Polyester Fiber Fill, 20 oz.
  • Kunin Felt, Premium, 9” x 12”, Olive, 2
  • Hot Glue, 2 sticks
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Branches, 1/2” – 3/4" diameter, 2” – 2 1/2” long, 5
  • Saw
  • Embroidery Floss, color to match fabric, 5 yds
  • Twine or 6 oz Jute, 7 yds (optional)
  • Patterns

DIRECTIONS:

  1. To print the patterns, click on the "Download Project PDF" button (above).
  2. Cut six of pumpkin pattern pieces. Sew two together, 1/4” SA on curve RST. Repeat. Sew an additional piece to each of the pairs RST, 1/4” SA. Pin the two sets of three together on the curves. This will create the pumpkin inside out. Sew together, 1/4” SA leaving 1 1/2” open on the end of one curve. Turn RSO. Stuff with Fiber Fill. Do not overstuff. Hand sew opening closed.
  3. Thread embroidery floss onto large needle. Secure thread to the bottom center of the pumpkin. Pull through the center to the top of the pumpkin and then back down to the center bottom of the pumpkin. Cinch tight and secure with a knot. Continue with the floss to tuft the pumpkin. Bring the floss around the outside of the pumpkin, centered between the seams and secure in the center top. Repeat from top to bottom and bottom to top between each section.
  4. For a different look, add twine or jute in three pieces over the embroidery floss securing each piece in place with a small amount of hot glue in the center of the top and bottom.
  5. Cut out the leaf patterns. Cut one leaf for each pumpkin of corresponding sizes (large for large pumpkin, medium for medium, small for small).
  6. Decide which branch section will work with each pumpkin. Apply a line of hot glue along the lower edge of a leaf and wrap 1/2” up from the end of the branch that will be attached to the pumpkin. To add a twine or jute bow, tie three pieces of the roping in a bow around the branch right under the leaf. Add a small amount of hot glue to secure in place.
  7. Add a generous amount of hot glue to the end of the branch and press in place in the top center of the pumpkin.

JOANN Hacks:

  • Dry fit the branches with the leaves and bows prior to adding glue. Showcase the best patterned side of the pumpkin on the front.
