I was going to make a pillow using a velvet-like fabric for the pumpkin and cotton fabric for the stem. All would be stuffed with polyester fiberfill. I purchased one from Pier 1 about a month ago and is a wonderful pillow, but not real big. I thought 2 or 3 would be nice to have for the holidays. As I started looking at the fabric, I remembered that I made an orangish colored batt to take to Twist, my local yarn store. (For those people that do not spin, a batt is a group of fibers combed together and ready to be spun.) I haven't made it there yet, but I thought this batt would make a perfect table decoration. It has a little Mylar in it, so it catches the light and gives off a pretty shine. I also put some gathered orange tulle under it to add a little orange pizzazz. I will post the pillows a little later, but I had to share this pumpkin now.
Blessings to you and yours! Dawn
