I love the fall and harvest time, and I love decorating my house with pumpkins of all sorts. I was looking online for project ideas and found some really awesome tutorials for pumpkins and thought it would make a great swap! Here are just a couple of the fantastic links to get the creative juices flowing!

Make a Cloth Pumpkin with Mommy Daze

Stuffed Sewing Stash Pumpkins

Fabric Pumpkins

The Simple Wife - Fabric Pumpkin Tutorial

Atypicalife - How to Make Fabric Pumpkins

We will:

  • Have one partner

  • Send 2 handmade FABRIC pumpkins to your partner made in a fall-ish pattern or color. Not big honking sized pumpkins, but ones that will be easily shipped in an average sized box. The minimum size of the pumpkins should be comparable to an average coffee mug. If you want to go bigger, great, but please don't go smaller. If you want to use felt, obviously pumpkin-y colors are great!

  • This swap is open to all levels of crafters! Many of the tutorials don't even use a sewing machine - they are very easily hand sewn. How cool is that?!

  • Include 1 tried and true pumpkin recipe on a recipe card.

  • Write a little note to your partner telling her about your favorite fall activity.

  • Please be considerate when packaging your pumpkins - squished pumpkins aren't very fun to receive!

This swap isn't profile specific, so feel free to start crafting before partners are assigned.

Happy autumn crafting everyone!

Does it have to be fabric? I knit & crochet. Watching one way or the other because I could break out the long unused machine.
