Wool Pumpkins

These couldn't be easier! It just took forever for me to sit down and make them...
They are made from Weeks Dye Works wool fabric cut into 2 circles. You can make your circles any size you like. Then just Stitch two together and fill with crushed walnut shells. I sort of soft sculptured them with perle cotton thread. Stitch right through the center with a sharp needle, coming up from the bottom to the top and around the sides of the pumpkin with each stitch. Tie off with a knot on the bottom after you get the number of ribs that you want on your pumpkin. The leaves are two layers of wool and I stitched around them with the sewing machine. Curled vine is a brown paper covered wire and the stem is a real branch. Aren't they cute! You can use them as a pincushion is you would like or just for display.
