Stack Circles

To create the pumpkin shape, stack a circle of felt plus two layers of quilt batting and the cardboard circle together. Glue in place.

Sew on Seams

Poke a hole in the center of the cardboard, then thread a needle with orange yard to create seams on your pumpkin.

Attach Ribbon

Cut about 1 1/2 yards of ribbon and lay it across the middle. Then seal fabric in place by gluing the smaller felt circle on top.

Add Adornment

A green felt leaf and rolled up twig complete the look. Now the only thing left to do is try it on!
