I was visiting Karen's blog, My Desert Cottage, the other day and came across one of her posts in which she was sharing her new fabric pumpkin creations....she is so creative! But as if that wasn't enough, she was also sharing with us step by step how to make them. I was so inspired that right away I knew I had to get to work on my very own pumpkins. Yay!

Now, I didn't make them exactly the same as hers. I knew I wanted to add an initial to one of my pumpkins, so I had to come up with a different pattern. I played around with a couple of ideas and ended up with these. What do you think?




Thank you Karen for being such an inspiration to me. If you are interested in learning how to make your very own pumpkins, please click here and it will take you directly to Karen's Pumpkin Tutorial post. Or maybe you might just want to stop by and say Hi.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend.

Hugs and Kisses,
