Pumpkins, I believe, are the popular protagonists of Halloween! Today we will make a cute little pumpkin for this holiday~~
There are two sizes provided, the large size is about 15cm in diameter, and the small size is about 10cm in diameter.
1. Cut the desired fabric according to the paper pattern →
Be careful to cut the paper at a 45° angle so that the pumpkin will be fuller and rounder.
2. Begin sewing. Sew the two pieces of the melon body together in 2 sets, taking care that the pointed end is not sewn to the edge but is left as a seam.
3. Sew the remaining 2 pieces together with the first two groups, so that the 3 pieces of a group connected to half a small pumpkin→
4. Then join them together again, and when you are done, cut some teeth in all the curved seams, and turn them over to the front.
5. Stuff the top opening with filler cotton as tightly as possible, this is essential. After stuffing, take a long hand sewing needle and thread it with a 2-meter-long thick thread (6 strands of embroidery floss are used here). Stitch the needle sparingly along the edge of the mouth.
6. Tighten the thread and then thread the hand sewing needle through the center and out the center of the other side.
7. Then the needle and thread around the pumpkin half a circle, once again from the bottom center to the top center, the line just pressed in the seams of the pumpkin, close the line when the line will be tightened tightly in the pumpkin strangulation of the indentation, and so back and forth shuttle 6 times to each of the seams are tightened with a line →
8. Continue in the middle of each of the two seams in a line, so that a small pumpkin is strangled into 12 petals →
9. To make a pumpkin tip, sew the two pieces of fabric together with the front facing inwards as shown in the picture below, and trim the edges of the seam allowance when you are finished.
10. Turn the pumpkin tip out of the front and stuff the center with cotton wool→
11. Sew the tip of the pumpkin to the center of the pumpkin (closed side) using a hidden needle stitch.
