Is it Pumpkin time yet?

Happy Monday Y'all!

Did everyone have a good weekend? I hope so. Is anyone ready for fall yet? I know summer is winding down and hopefully cool breezes of fall will start to show up.

This week have for you a Wonderful Tutorial for making a simple and easy pumpkin.
Pumpkins are something you can put out in fall and leave out til Thanksgiving!
The Super Easy Prim Pumpkin Tutorial from Old Road Primitives.
 Oh my goodness aren't these just darling!!!

Ok, here we go...
Step #1-Cut or tear a rectangle piece from muslin!
(10" X 20" for one of the pumpkins above!) 

Step #2-Fold the rectangle piece in half and sew together
at the sides, leaving a small opening for turning!

Step #3-Gather stitch both the top and bottom closed!
Step #4-Turn the pumpkin right sides out!
Step #5-Stuff the pumpkin liberally with fiberfill stuffing!
Step #6-Hand stitch the opening closed!
 Step #7-Wrap three individual pieces of string
tightly around the pumpkin to form the "sections"!
 Step #8-Mix equal amounts of burnt orange craft
paint with water.  Paint the pumpkin with this mixture!
Step #9-Mix Instant Coffee with hot water for the stain!
Stain the pumpkin!  Let it dry!
Step #10-Grunge the pumpkin using brown shoe polish!
Sand lightly to give your pumpkin that great "aged" look!
Finishing-garnish your pumpkin with
a stick stem, leaves & dried goods!!!
Simply change the size of your rectangle
 to change the size of your pumpkins!
Once you get started you'll want to make
a whole ~Pumpkin Patch~!!!
