Instructions for Week 3 - Making the Pumpkin Table Center





  1. Place (2) Pumpkin Table Center pieces right sides together and sew along (1) length. Repeat until all (6) pieces are joined together. Finally sew the first and last panel together right sides together leaving top of the pumpkin open.






2. Using a small pair of scissors, carefully clip around the perimeter of the entire seam allowances and notch out all the inside corners. Be careful not to cut into the stitch lines.




3. Turn the Pumpkin right side out. Use a turning tool or chopsticks to fully push out the edges of the Pumpkin.



4. Using a stuffing tool or chopsticks, stuff each Pumpkin shape with polyfill to the desired firmness.



5. Insert a cinnamon stick into the center top of the pumpkin opening, making sure to tuck the top seam allowance inside. For extra durability, you can add some hot glue inside the pumpkin to the stick. Hand stitch the top opening close using a tight ladder stitch. Smaller stitches keep your work tidy and more secure.



6. Hand stitch the Pumpkin Base to the bottom opening using a tight ladder stitch. Turn the edges of the Pumpkin Base in slightly to hide the raw edges of the Pumpkin bottom opening. You may need to add a little bit more polyfill to keep the cinnamon stick into place.



7. Embellish the leaf as desired and tack down or glue to the top of the pumpkin, covering up the opening of the cinnamon stick.
