No-Sew Fabric Pumpkins

Here's a craft for you just in time for your fall decor. Remember me telling you to save the sleeves off of the shirt you used to make the T-shirt scarf? Ok, get that back out now to make a fabric pumpkin. This craft was taught to me by my sister in law last weekend.
 Cut off a sleeve- the longer it is the taller your pumpkin will be. Turn sleeve inside out
Tie rubber bands tightly at each end of the sleeve.
 Cut a slit in the tube for stuffing- it will be less noticeable if you cur it in the sleeve's seam.
 Turn right side out and stuff.
 Use hot glue to shut seam- you could stitch it if you want.
 Finally use a needle and thread- we used embroidery floss- to sew up from the bottom through the middle and around to the top- continue as many times as you want to create the pumpkin segments- you probably want at least 5 segments to your pumpkin.
This is the finished product. The smaller pumpkins are much easier to get the thread through. But if you want a big pumpkin don't let that stop you! It can be done!

Linking with sew much ado, the trendy treehouse, my girlish whims, polkadots on parade, and sugar and dots.

Fun Fun,

  1. So cute!!!! I miss craft night/afternoons!!

  2. This is rad! No sew always works for me (even if I've got a sewing machine) and the little blue pumpkins are also adorable!
