If you’re looking to add some adorable fall decor to your home, creating fabric pumpkins is a fun and creative project. These fabric pumpkins are perfect for Halloween or Thanksgiving season and can be made in various sizes and patterns. If you have basic sewing skills, follow this step-by-step guide to sew your very own fabric pumpkin.
- Orange fabric
- Green fabric
- Hot glue gun (optional)
Step 1: Cut 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
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
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
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
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.
