Fabric Pumpkin Patch

Hi Friends,
I've been working on a few new treasures for my shoppe
called  the
"Pumpkin Patch Collection"

Just arriving to fill the shelves for displaying now through Thanksgiving,
 are some pumpkins like these.
This is the larger design with tone on tone paisley fabric.

Farmhouse pumpkin in a ticking fabric and vintage tag. 
I also added stacked vintage spools for the stem

Animal print with jute stem and friends tag.

Pretty french toile fabric with red leaves and Eiffel Tower tag.

Another French style fabric with Eiffel Tower tag and check ribbon.

Sweet checked farmhouse pumpkin with fall leaf and paper rose.

Black velvet fabric with polka dot flower, hand created jute stem and vintage tag.

Another velvet in black with animal print stem.

Sweet owl sweater pumpkin with cuff stem.

Vintage doily memories pumpkin created with creamy flannel fabric.

Sweater pumpkin with vintage doily and memories tag.

Sweet little petite pumpkin created from a sweater and cuff stem.

Another petite pumpkin with lace ribbon.

And of course a little petite for  my shabby and chic girls who always want pink and pretty.

Lastly my favorite of all called, Petite Charmer, created from a sweater that had little gemstones on it,
I incorporated that area with the stones in this design and added the silk white roses,
lace ribbon and charming tag.

I hand created all these using a design I created after not finding any patterns I liked.
I used my sewing machine and also lots of hand sewing using embroidery thread for durability when pulling the pumpkins closed. They are all filled with poly fill and some with a few dry beans.

I had such a great time and so glad to have these complete
and filling the shelves

Now I'll be sewing a few more tiny pumpkins using the rest of the two old sweaters I cut up.
So much fun and a great way to use up and recycle fabric, sweaters and trims.

Thank you for visiting my little pumpkin patch.

See you next time.

Blessings for a special Autumn Day
and thank you for your visits and comments!
