I admit, I have an addiction – to making fabric pumpkins! I can’t stop; if I make one, I make another, and another, and another. I simply can’t get enough. They’re quick, easy, cute, and a great (re)purpose project; what could you not love about them?
For the last two years I have made hundreds of the little beauties but not from a vintage quilt like these. I’ll show you other (re)purposed pumpkins after I have exhausted all the projects I’ve created from the vintage quilt, but for now enjoy these precious little patchwork pumpkins.
If you’ve been reading this series on (re)purposed sewing, you’ll remember how worn the patches are on the old quilt, so I had to line them with a piece of muslin so the stuffing wouldn’t come out.
I absolutely love them!
To date, I have only made two but plan at least a few more – as many as the leftover scraps will allow. My friend who inspired me to remake her mother’s wedding quilt [that was in shreds] will be hosting her entire family this Thanksgiving before her Marine son and his wife move to the other side of the world. I’d like for her to have as many as possible to decorate her table.
I think they make lovely holiday table favors. What do you think?
Stay tuned, more to come.
