Even though South Florida doesn't have a true fall season, there's still a shift in temperatures as we slink closer to November. We move away from hurricane season, the days don't seem so humid and the nights turn cooler. We even get the chance to sport lightweight sweaters and the occasional jacket. I guess you could say that's our "changing of the leaves." Nonetheless, I love the autumn colors and enjoy creating some pretty things to decorate the home or gift to friends and family.
This weekend, I made a favorite: fabric pumpkins!. I had collected a variety of fall-inspired fabrics and decided to put them to good use. These pumpkins are quite easy to make and can be handsewn (although using a sewing machine does quicken the pace). I had come across a great tutorial by Daniel Thompson a couple of years back and had made some Christmas-themed ones! If you have time, I definitely suggest whipping some up!
I made a first set . . .
. . . and then another trio
I loved making the crushed velvet pumpkins the most. I think I'll be making a third of just crushed velvet ones. Did I tell you they're addicting to make? Talk soon, Sue
