Fabric Pumpkin Tutorial:

You will Need:

  • Fabric, Get creative! I have seen these done with old sweaters or old flannel. I used cotton fabric, but you could even use a linen or any other fabric that has a nice texture or pattern.
  • Strong Thread, Use a jean thread or cross stitching thread
  • Polyfil, or any other stuffing you may have lying around.
  • Wooden Beads, or sticks you find in your yard.
  • Glue, I used a hot glue gun.
  • Basic sewing supplies.

Cut List:


  • Basic Version: Cut one piece 8″ by 20″
  • Patchwork Version: Cut 5 pieces at 8″ by 5″


  • Basic Version: Cut one piece 7″ by 17.5″
  • Patchwork Version: Cut 5 pieces at 7″ by 4.5″
