Well, it is technically baby’s. I decided to attempt making another toy for baby for the fall. No, I have not the time, but one has to MAKE time for doing little things like that for the loved ones in our life. After I was done with the pumpkin, I couldn’t help doing a “big people” display with it:
Here is the “little people” version of the display:
The pattern is available for free from Schlosser Designs — the instructions are very clear. I was glad to find a child-safe fabric pumpkin pattern where one doesn’t have to use twigs or empty thread spools for the stalk. I was able to follow it without much of a problem. If you have known me for any length of time, you know that I am TERRIBLE in reading sewing instructions.
This is another scrap project. If you notice, the apple print fabric has made its appearance before in my Basket Full of Apple quilt, and the Children’s Corner Lucy Jumper:
I had to look up how to do buttonhole stitch by hand. The way it is done is almost opposite to how a machine does buttonhole stitches:
Just like the last toy I made, I put in jingle bells to make the toy more interesting! :) I gave it to baby this morning. Baby wasn’t quite sure how to take her “great” pumpkin — it was a bit bigger than what I had imagined it would turn out. Maybe the great pumpkin would grow on baby before the fall season is over! :)
Thank you for popping by. I wish you an enjoyable weekend! Tootles.
