DIY Sew Easy Pumpkin

This is a super easy fall decoration I made out of an old orange shirt and some other fabric scraps. You could use many other types of fabric as well.

Sew Easy Pumpkin

  • Orange, green, and brown fabric or felt scraps
  • Something to use as a circular template
  • Scissors
  • Needle and thread
  • Something to stuff the pumpkin with
  1. Cut out a large orange circle, a piece of green sleeve to fold over or a smaller green circle, and a brown strip to fold over and use as the stem of the pumpkin.
  2. Sew a loose gathering stitch around the orange circle, begin to pull it tight, stuff the pumpkin, and then finish gathering it together, stitching it closed tightly.
  3. Fold over the piece of green sleeve and gather the unfinished end together, or gather the smaller green circle.
  4. Fold the brown strip together to look like a stem, and stitch it into the green pumpkin top.
  5. Whip-stich the green pumpkin top to the orange pumpkin.
