You guys, I know we’re in August, and summer is still going on, especially here, it hasn’t cooled down a bit and won’t before October for sure, but I’m in such a fall mood! It’s crazy and I know it, but I can’t help it. Fall will be here before we know it [at least on the calendar for me]. So today I want to show you these cute and easy fabric pumpkins for fall!
You’ll have enough time to get them ready for sure. I’m having fall on my mind a lot lately and this usually happens to me at this time of year. I get so melancholic and really miss Canada and also Germany a bit, even though I haven’t been living there for some time now. Fall is my favourite time of year, and I feel like cuddling up under a blanket on a dark and cloudy day with a hot cup of coffee…
Well, I didn’t cuddle up under a blanket when I made these, I cranked up the a/c to be able to have a hot cup of coffee at least, lol. I’m sure you’ve seen lots like these little fabric pumpkins before, they are everywhere and just so fun I think! So today I’m sharing my very easy version with you!
I used fabric I had at home and a plate to trace a circle on the fabric and then cut it out. I grabbed grey thread and doubled it, so it would not rip so easily as I didn’t have thick thread at home.
I added stitches all around the edge of the circle and tightened it up slowly while adding more stitches. I then filled it with left over fabric scraps and tightened up the thread a bit more until there was only a small hole left for the stick to go in. When I put the stick in the middle I added more stitches to kind of sew it all in place to hold the stick a bit better in place. It might have worked better with thicker thread as you can pull it better and tighter, but for now this was ok for me as well.
Easy Fabric Pumpkins for Fall
I added little scaps of fabric cut to a leaf shape to the stem and some twine.
Are you ready for fall yet??? If you weren’t then maybe now you are!
Thanks for stopping by, have a great pre-fall and rest of August!!!
