Easy Home decor Pumpkins!

This super easy tutorial only requires a rectangle piece of fabric (of any kind), some (yarn, embroidery floss, twine,string), glue, and needle and thread

I used FabriTac and some upholstery thread for my project, the upholstery thread is  very strong and since i will be tugging on it alot i dont want my thread to break

Cut a rectangle 20″ x 10″, Fold it in half and sew down the side opposite of the fold, this can done either by sewing machine or by hand like so

turn it right side out

take so me more thread and quickly sew around the raw edges, this doesnt need to be neat as we are just going to gather the fabric by pulling onto the thread. you wont see your stitches in the end so dont even worry about it not looking beautiful at this point.

This is how it will look once its gathered.

Grab some pillow stuffing  and stuff the pumpkin, you may have to add more stuffing after you start to sew the pumpkin shut

Again sew around the edge and then gather all the fabric into the centre. Now i am switching to my darning needle and embroidery floss

I will be putting my needle throw the centre of the pumpkin to create the lines on the sides


put the needle through the centre and around the pumpkin 8 times so it looks like the pumpkin has 8 different sections, pull it a little tight so it indents the side of the pumpkin giving it a more pumpkin form

I’m going to be using a scrap of burlap for my stem and im using fabritac and then i will roll up the burlap

using my glue i will glue on the stem of my pumpkin, if you dont feel comfortable using glue you can of course sew it on for extra security


Adorable Dainty Mohair flower Headband

This is a pattern for a simple flower, I made these little headbands for my photography business and made them in a style that they would tie around a babies head. flowers can be sewn onto any type of headband if you are looking for some type of stretch

This pattern comes with a Video tutorial also

To make this exact headband i used Mohair

Mohair yarn  Or a baby sport yarn

A flower centre, i used a pearl for mine, and a great tip! Go to a second hand store to get pearl necklaces for beads, way cheaper and you get alot more!

i went over to michaels and i purchased a pack of paper and drew up a few templates in varying sizes

the paper i purchased was a rose colour pad with different shades of pink, my mistake was not to buy such a heavy weight paper but i wanted the colours so i knew i would endure the painful cutting of the scissors but i knew it would be worth it haha, i suggest a 80lb card stock… not a 110lb haha!

make sure you have a good amount of hot glue sticks on hand as one flower took about 3 or 4 full sticks

To learn how to make these flowers check out the tutorial below!
