Fabric pumpkins are a must-have for Halloween, aren’t they? They are great for decorating your home if you would like a rustic look. Of course, you could easily buy it from the shops but these plaid fabric pumpkins are so lovely, you can’t just stop at making just one.
I am feeling a bit tired and lazy today. I don’t feel like sitting in front of the machine. But, I had decided to do a free plaid fabric pumpkin pattern weeks ago and I am done cutting the fabric and the wooden pieces.
That’s when I thought of hand-sewing the pumpkins. I could just do it sitting on my couch or my bed. It was so easy, I could just finish it in just a few steps. Well, you can sew it by machine too!
With Fall almost here, I don’t seem to get enough of pumpkins around my home. A few weeks back, I had made a fall pillow with pumpkin applique and here I am back with another pumpkin-based sewing project, the DIY fabric pumpkin.
I love plaid fabrics and I love choosing them for my holiday sewing projects. These pumpkins in plaid fabric look so much like Fall! Just arrange them with cones, twigs, lanterns, and other fall décor to bring in the spirit of the beautiful season.
These cloth pumpkins are so versatile that you can make them in different colors, fabrics, and sizes. You can make a number of them to decorate your dinner table or arrange them along the window to welcome your guest during Fall. Here I have also made a few in brighter colors as a handmade gift for my friend.
This tutorial on how to make fabric pumpkins is so easy that almost any beginner with no crafting or sewing experience can make it in minutes.
I have used burlap twines for a more rustic look, you may replace it with embroidery floss if you like it.
