It’s Pumpkin Week — Make No Sew Fabric Pumpkins!

Hello TT&J readers, Jen here visiting again.
It’s always a delight to be here on one of my favorite blogs. 

So today I am sharing with you my
 “NO SEW Fabric Pumpkins!”
 
They are easy and oh’ so cute.
You can pick any fabrics you want for this project. I think that this project cost around $12.00 – 14.00 dollars.
However, if you have fabric on hand, a glue gun, some ribbon some polly fill, garbage bags, scissors, and rubber bands then this project will cost you nothing. 

Here is a tutorial from TOP left to BOTTOM right image:

  • First take your bag/grocery store (I used doggie disposal bags, or diaper disposal bags would work great too) and I filled it with poly-fil to my desired amount.
  •  Next I pushed out some air and tied a small rubber band around the bag. I clipped off the extra un-needed bag. Then I placed the bag in the center of my fabric square, I gathered all corners, tucking were needed and pulled everything to the top center.
  • I again wrapped the pulled fabric in some more rubber bands, and too cut off the extra un-needed fabric.
  • To embellish the fabric pumpkin I then hot glued some ribbon around the pumpkin two pieces connecting from one end to another. Lastly I moved onto the stem. I took some cut green polka dot ribbon and hot glued them from one end to the other. 
  • TIP: for the second piece of hot glued ribbon I made sure I tucked in any extra sticking out fabric by pinching it into the first piece of glued ribbon.
  • I finished the pumpkin stem with some rick rack and some jute. You can add your favorite ribbon trims. 

This project was super easy to do, I probably spent around 30 minutes total making these.
