Assorted Fabric Pumpkins

Last week Deborah over at Green Willow Pond showed us her drop cloth pumpkins she had made.
A link to her blog is HERE and her tutorial is great.

I thought it was one of the cutest cloth pumpkins I've seen!
And seeing as I've had this thing for using drop cloths lately for anything imaginable I just had to try this.
Last night I finally got around to making one (and I want to make more of them).
I added a rhinestone pin to mine, I thought it needed a little bling with the coarseness of the canvas and stick


Here are a few I made several years ago, wool and velvet


And now we go way back to the late 70's or maybe I made these in 1980, not sure. Back then I was working in a fabric store and in those days you used what you were expected to use, cotton fabric. 
No one would even consider using a canvas drop cloth! 
I think I like the canvas best of all.


I couldn't resist adding a picture of my cat, I was trying to cover her with leaves but the look on her face is...Try is just once more and you'll pay!


And the pretty orange hibiscus flower that opened this morning.

Debbie is an inspiration, isn't she?
Your pumpkin turned out really sweet, Faye! So are all of the other ones you've made. I've always liked the velvet ones I see on the other blogs, too.
Your kitty looks quite perturbed with you..lol.
Happy Halloween!
