It’s October, and Autumn is in full swing here.

I do love this season. Hot chocolate, jumpers and crispy leaves on the ground, it’s all so cosy!

This year I decided to whip up a couple of fabric pumpkins to add to the autumn feel. I even have a Halloween quilt this year! (Well, it’s a quilt with spooky fabrics, it’s not only out at Halloween!)

I used this Pumpkin sewing pattern from Annie Thornally

It comes in 5 sizes and is such a fun and simple make. I have made 4 pumpkins this time, in 3 different sizes.

I have made all my samples in orange/pumpkin fabric but I think they also look fabulous in neutrals and liberty prints or other spooky fabrics would also look amazing!

These little guys below are a 'small' size (there's a smaller size still in the pattern, called 'Mini'.) I used a Cloud 9 fabrics, Bloom together fabric print.

The next size that I made was a 'Medium' and for this I used a fun print from the Art Gallery Fabrics, Spooky and Sweet collection. There's a newer release of this collection, Spooky and Sweeter which is also adorable.

The last one I made was a 'large' (and the pattern goes one larger to include an 'extra large'.) I used this pumpkin print from the Dashwood Full Moon collection.

For all the pumpkins, I used Groves wool blend felt in Mushroom for the stalk and Sorrell for the leaves.

To attach the leaves and stalk I used Aurifil 80wt 2326. It's a fine thread and the colour blended perfectly with felt stalk.

I used this toy filling to stuff the pumpkins.

I hope you have enjoyed viewing my pumpkins, I'm delighted with them, they are so cute and I love that they will still be looking this fresh in a month's time!
