Plush Pumpkins

Small cotton and satin pumpkins

A few years ago, my husband started carving pumpkins professionally. I, in turn, started making plush ones to sell at his events. I started with a basic design with fabric stems. The satin one in the picture here has a cinnamon stick.

I moved on to pumpkins with representations of my husband’s faces. We made transfers of each of the best faces and turned them into permanent keepsakes. Many people attending the event would want to know if the carvings could be saved. This is one of the best ways!

I also had a bunch of burlap basmati rice bags I had been saving. I had no clue what I was going to do with them, and they languished in my basement for years. With country chic being such a popular decorating style, it was clear that pumpkins were the way to go with them.

Having run out of rice bags, I bought several linen feed sacks at an antique mall. So new this season…French Country Linen Plush Pumpkins!

All pumpkins have either 6 or 8 panels. With the feed sacks, I aligned the stripes with the centers of the panels.

There are 3 sizes: small 8 panel, medium 6 panel, and large 6 panel.

More to come along with white damask linen in several sizes. All will be available on my Square site.
