Have a toddler in need of something to do? Want a new way to make a cute pumpkin?
Grab that itchy roll of TP no one wants to use.. and read on!
What do you need?
*A fresh roll of TP
*A fat quarter of fabric
*Some extra batting, smaller than your fat quarter
*A jumbo twig
What do you do?
You layer it as the image shows above, and ya stuff it all in!
Here's Kiddo with her pumpkins. Sorry for the blurry image, but playing with these pumpkins is MUCH more fun than posing with them..
Love my stem? It's a real pumpkin stem! Now before you go to your local pumpkin farm in the middle of night to scalp some stems, here's the deal. Wait till Halloween is over and ask nicely =) You can't even use them yet anyways.. Let them sit out and dry for weeks and weeks. Don't put them airtight in a ziploc unless you want to see a science experiment... Sure, ask me how I know..
And next year you will have these AMAZING stems to craft with.. I'm going to be making a few velvet pumpkins for my Thimbles & Threads class attendees ;o)
