I’m sure there’s a rhyme for that… ‘Three little pumpkins, sitting on a fence…’ or something like that. Anyways, these little pumpkins aren’t sitting on a fence, but they are still darn adorable! Fat Quarterly has put out a special ‘Fall Inspired’ issue with tons of great things to sew! These little guys are in there…and wouldn’t just one of them make a great coaster?!? They do. I use one all the time in the sewing room now.
I love quick seasonal projects, and this is just that. The technique for the pumpkins may be something new for most of you, but once you complete one you will have the hang of it and start thinking of all the possibilities.
My awesome orange gingham ribbon and tiny pom-pom trim came from The Ribbon Jar. It’s my go-to ribbon shop and pretty much the only spot I buy ribbon. A local friend I know through the guild owned it and then passed the reigns to her mom, and she is just as fantastic about the ribbon she stocks and how quickly it’s shipped. So if you’re ever looking for ribbon, I can’t recommend The Ribbon Jar enough. Definitely worth a bookmark for later.
Anyways, back to the special issue – it’s a GREAT deal at only $5. There are quite a few projects I’m hoping to find time to make. There’s quilts, bags, embroidery… I’d love to see these little guys if you happen to make some! It’s such a great way to display all of those fantastic orange fabrics.
