Fabric Pumpkins for my mantel.....

All summer long my husband has been working on building an addition onto our house. We built our house 15 years ago and we both felt it was time to change things up a little, by taking walls out, make the family room larger with a stone fireplace with a wonderful mantel. Now the fireplace and mantel have not been completed but it definetly is in the works. I have a vision but it takes time....

I saw these adorable fabric pumpkins on Dawn's blog and I knew I had to give it a try! She provided a link to Amy's blog over at The Idea Room which provides you with the best tutorial on how to make these charming little pumpkins. I can just picture these little cuties sitting on my mantel for Halloween!

This is what I enjoy so much about blogging....the inspiration out there is endless!

  9. These turned out fantastic.. I love this pattern.. It is going to be a yearly thing for me.. I think you should stamp something on a piece of fabric and do your painting with fabric paint like on the onesie.. I am trying to see if you did that here or if it is the fabric.. AWESOMENESS Christine...:)

  12. Hi Christine. These are absolutely gorgeous. Love the colours of your fabrics. I think it is always nice to have little home-made items around the home, if you can get the time to make them of course. It adds that little bit more of a personal homely touch. We don't really celebrate Halloween here. Hope you have had a nice weekend. Donna

  14. These are just darling. Did you stamp the white one, or is that the material. Hurry and get that fireplace built so you can share the pics.

  22. Something has gone wrong with my profile because I seem to have to enter who I am and my URL everytime I leave a comment and usually, the blogging system just knows me. So I'm not leaving a comment on every post but I loved your last creation. Oh so sweet! And I love this embossed and glittery collection too! Hugs, Lesley
