  • Hot glue gun (optional)

Step 1: Cut Fabric

Cutting⁤ fabric

Start by cutting two pieces of orange​ fabric in the shape ‌of ⁤a pumpkin. You can ​use ​a ​template‍ or draw the shape freehand. It’s also a good​ idea‍ to cut a small⁣ rectangle from green fabric for the pumpkin stem.

Step ‌2: Stitch the Pumpkin

Stitching the pumpkin

Place the two pieces of orange fabric together,⁤ with the right sides facing ⁢inwards. Use a sewing machine or hand stitch​ around the edges, leaving a small opening ⁤for turning and stuffing.

Step 3: Stuff the⁢ Pumpkin

Stuffing the pumpkin

Turn ⁤the fabric pumpkin ​inside⁣ out and start stuffing it with polyester‍ filling or ‍any ⁢other ⁤soft material. Make sure to stuff it evenly and achieve the desired ‍fullness.

Step 4: Sew the Opening

Sewing the opening

Using a needle and thread, carefully stitch the opening closed. Make sure‌ the stitches are tight and secure. You can also use ⁤a ⁤hot glue gun as an alternative method for sealing⁣ the opening.

Step 5: Attach ‍the‌ Stem

Attaching⁣ the stem

Fold⁤ the ⁣small rectangle of ⁢green fabric ​in half lengthwise and stitch ⁣along the edge. Turn it‌ inside ​out to create a stem shape. Attach the ‌stem to ⁢the top of ‌the⁣ pumpkin⁢ using ​a ⁣needle and thread, or with hot glue.

Once complete, you can decorate your fabric pumpkin⁢ further ⁢by⁢ adding leaf shapes,‍ embroidery, or festive ribbons. Experiment with different fabrics and sizes ​to create a unique‍ collection of fabric pumpkins for your home.
