Easy Fabric Pumpkins (with attached leaves!)

fabric pumpkin

If you are ready for some simple sewing this project is for you! If you can sew straight lines, you can sew this pumpkin. 

 I started out with some fabric quarters. I found two that I liked together and squared them up. I saved the extra fabric for future projects.

Match up our squares, with the right sides facing each other. Stitch around the edge (leaving a small hole to turn it right side out later).


Before turning the fabric, snip off your corners. It will help them lay flatter once it has been turned and ironed.

Here's what it  should look like. Give it a good press with the iron and then stitch it again around the edge, right sides out. The gap will close with this step.

With the orange side up (very important!) , fold in each corner.

Pin each corner and stitch down. You are creating a channel for the string to pass though. 

Thread your jute/string though the holes.  Flip it over and gently pull the strings tight. 
I used plastic shopping bags as a filling. Tie it off.

It should look like this when you are done. You can stuff the excess string inside, out of sight, or you can pull a little bit out and tie a bow, or add a small stick for a stem like I did.
