A new Fall project in my Pumpkin Patch!
I had such fun sewing wool applique mitten ornaments HERE
that I decided I wanted to make wooly pumpkins for Fall.
Working with wool is very new to me
and I have very little wool in my stash so I decided to get
as much of a head start as I could by using a kit.
I found many pretty choices at
My Red Door Designs
I decided on their pretty
Harvest Gathering Kit
which has everything I need to make a
9" by 17.5" quilt
except batting, thread, fusible, and other sewing room stock items.
I have a very cute furry little feline helper who really likes this kit, too.
I also found after I received the kit that they suggest cutting plastic templates
and fortunately I also had a good sized sheet of this in my sewing room supplies.
I soon found that template plastic is a favorite new cat toy.
I actually had to stop her from carrying this off.
After bagging each little piece ...
... there are 30 of them in this kit! ...
and carefully discarding all the little plastic snippings
so my silly kitty would not eat them
I am ready for the next step ...
cutting and fusing the pieces to the background.
The kit contained all the fabrics needed for a wallhanging,
but I may add some other fabrics and make a pillow.
It is turning much colder here and most of the leaves have fallen.
Winter is in the air in my quilty corner.
A good time for sewing wooly projects.
I will be traveling for Thanksgiving this year
and cooking turkey when we get home.
May you and yours have a Happy Thanksgiving!
