Got my darlin' fabric pumpkin out that you made last year! I love it :) And I love the wonderful memory of it, especially.

Have a blessed Sabbath, friend!


Hmmm...I've got the stems from breaking them off all the squash I put in storage today--perfect timing. Now, all I need is fabric. I don't have much of a stash like you and Janna! I put all the stems aside after reading this. I'll have to come up with something cuz these are too cute!!


Really like those pumpkins!


LOVE this project. We will give it a try.


brilliant !!!!!!!!
I'll make this soon ! MERCI !

From a guy's perspective i really don't understand what they're for, really. Could anyone please explain it to me ?

Hi There!
I was looking at another blog today and she had some stuffed pumpkins that looked so much like yours...the fabric was velvet! So after finding out how much they cost...kind of overwhelming for my budget, I started a search on the internet...guess what?? I finally found your site and the pumpkin pattern was just perfect! One other pattern said to use a circle of fabric and wondering if you have ever tried that method? The other question I have is this....where do I find the stems?
I am sending a prayer for a very very swift recovery, as well!

Thanks for sharing such a great tutorial.

Hi, I posted your tutorial link on my site a few days ago. Thank you for sharing the adorable how to.
I pray the Lord continues to heal you from the top of your head to the tips of your toes.

would like to make some of your pumpkins,but have no stems. Do you sell stems?
i am interested.

Hi, I love your fabric pumpkins! I sell plastic pellets ( and would love to include your pattern on my site. I'm encouraging people to use my pellets as the weight in the bottom. A big advantage of the pellets over rice or beans is that you never have to worry about mice going after them. Also, no problems with mold.

I'll be happy to include a link to your site if that is ok with you.
