Itty Bitty Pumpkin

I mentioned yesterday that I did a few "little" things on Sunday in hope of jump starting my craft ambition.
I kind of sort of but not exactly followed a tutorial that I saw for fabric tube pumpkins. (I would also give you a link to her blog but I get email updates and it's not in my reader and I can't for the life of me remember the name of the blog) Any way, I saw kind of sort of but not exactly followed the tutorial because I didn't actually read the tutorial yet. I pinned it to make later. Then Sunday night I was thinking about it and I had a little scrap piece of fabric sitting there. I figured just sew it into a tube, close up the ends, stuff it and stick in a stem. This is what I ended up with.


In case you are thinking that it doesn't look so itty bitty, here's another picture.

I'll eventually make some more in a bigger size but I kind of like this little one.

You are amazing! I consider myself crafty but not in a million years would I be able to make that on the fly. Just way too cute! You are such an inspiration. Thank you for sharing!

That is so adorable. I had no idea the stem was a cinnamon stick until I saw the close up in your hand. It is adorable.

It is an itty bitty pumpkin indeed. Had you not held it I would have thought it was much bigger. It's adorable.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

It kinda looks like a strawberry to me - maybe it's the pattern on the fabric.

Rose said...

What a sweet little piece! I love miniatures. I'm sure that it would be beautiful in larger sizes, too, though.

Catherine said...

Dear Ann, These are adorable and I like the cinnamon stick for a stem.
Blessings dear. Catherine

Oh, it IS tiny!! Very cute! I think a few of different sizes would be very cute on a shelf or table.
