Maddy had to make a pumpkin out of something other than a pumpkin for school this week. I wasn't feeling overly creative, and we were short on time after a busy weekend so this is what we came up with. I think it turned out really cute. We did use a real stem. In case you think I did all the work let me assure you that she really did help. She sewed the circle on the bottom of the fabric and we filled it with plastic pellets. She also started sewing the yarn to gather the top, but I had to finish that part as she was too tired.
