Spice Cake Fabric Wall Hanging & Pumpkins

The Holiday Mini Catalog starts today!

So many great products and I love the fabric!

Using the Spice Cake Designer Fabric (124066) and Designer Buttons (124113) I created a wall hanging and two matching stuffed pumpkins with one package of the designer fabric. I sort of made up the pumpkins after ones I have seen so really don't have a pattern but they were easy to make. After I was done with the wall hanging I had two strips of fabric that were 8" wide, the Pool Party colored one was 24" long and the other was 28" long. I sewed the 8" sides together and ran a gathering stitch on the top and bottom of the long sides. Gathered the bottom as tight as possible and then adhered a 2" cirlce of wool felt over the gathers with a glue gun. Gather the top loosly and fill about 1/3 full of rice to weight the bottom and fill with stuffing. Gather top tightly and secure by sewing closed. I free hand cut a stem from the Soft Suede print fabric and stuffed it and hot glued to the top of the pumpkin. Added a bow made from the Soft Suede striped grosgrain ribbon (125060) and a Spice Cake Designer button (124113) with White Baker's Twine (124262).

The wall hanging was inspired by a pattern in American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine (October 2011 issue). I changed it up a bit to use my Stampin' Up! supplies on it. I used the Big Shot machine to cut the letters, tags, and leaves. (Leaves #2 die - 113459, Two Tags die - 115954, and Serif Essentials Alphabet die - 113464)
The Pumpkins and tags are make from wool felt that I sponged ink on to add definition. All cut out pieces are adhered with an iron on fabric adhesive.

Happy Stampin'........or Sewing in this case-
