Woven Fabric Pumpkin

Hey everyone! My name is Amanda and I am the creator of Every Creative Endeavor!
I am so excited to be apart of the pumpkin patch series! Thank you so much Kristyn for inviting me! I just love pumpkins and all the projects so far have been so fun! I have a lot of new project ideas on my to-do list – and if you are like me, then here is one more to add!
It was pumpkin week, so I made this adorable little woven fabric pumpkin – I love it and love the way it pops!

Let’s get started!

You will need:
A spare frame
Fabric
Raffia
Pumpkin Pattern
Burlap
sewing machine
Liquid Stitch
Hot glue

First: You will need 2 different orange fabrics – make stripes that are about 1 inch wide and 12 inches long.
Second: Weave your orange fabrics together. I pinned my first row and then pinned a few here and there to keep it all together.

Just keep weaving until your area is the size you would like your pumpkin to be.

Third: Pin your pumpkin pattern to the fabric and sew around it. When you are done sewing, cut out your pumpkin. Since it is all stitched together you can remove all your pins.

Fourth: I painted my frame Rustoleum Eden and then Espresso and sanded it down a bit. I then put some bunting and burlap in the frame. I also put some bunting under the pumpkin to give it some dimension.
Fifth: Because I am either really lazy or super brilliant! I used liquid stitch and glued the pumpkin to the burlap – you could even use your hot glue gun!
Sixth: Glue on some cute leaves and a stem – I added some raffia too – mostly because it looks super cute!
And then your done! yay!
I love the cute little frayed boxes on the pumpkin! So darling!
