Pumpkin Obsession

I may have a slight problem.  A sickness?  I am in love obsessed with these pumpkins!

What's not to love?  They're soft, fluffy and white...sort of like a new puppy :)

Update: the sweater pumpkin tutorial is now available


Can you guess what they're made from?




I'll give you a hint....


It's something that you wear.


Did you guess it?  Sweaters!  The fluffier and softer the better!



It's a great way to reuse old sweaters that no longer fit!  You can reuse the sweater sleeves to make small pumpkins.  A few beans in the bottom, some stuffing, sew up the top and embellish.

  2. They're cute! I wish you lived closer. You could try to teach me how to sew, although...at least 3 people have already tried.

    1. Thank you Susanne, feel free to make your own...I'd love to see the results! I agree, white suits my decor better than orange and I think I can live with it longer :)

  4. These are so elegant looking! They make me want to reach out and touch them. I'd love to see a tutorial about how you made them!
    I linked over from the Inspiration Board Creative Party where I am participating too and would love it if you'd stop by.

    1. Thanks Antonella! I will try to put together a tutorial in the next couple weeks...I will give a shout out on my FB page when I do.
      Cindy ;)
      p.s. I'm a recovering scrapbook-aholic and have done numerous paper projects myself, never quilling though. It's beautiful!

    1. Hi Ashley...children's sweaters are the BEST for this project, so don't overlook your children's closets, lol - my daughter just gave me the "evil eye" :) - she's blog-comment-creeping, haha
      I'm looking forward to checking out your blog too!!

  13. I would love to see a tutorial on these pumpkins. I really like the trend this year of white or burlap pumpkins. Such a nice change to the more traditional colors. I think that's the route I'm going to take this season. TFS!
