SEWING THE PUMPKIN PINCUSHION

Sew two of the orange shapes together along one side. Fold one side back and sew another orange piece along the other long side.

Repeat the last step so that you have two sets of three pieces, as shown above.

Turn one unit right side out and nest it inside the other unit. Pin the two units together. Sew all the way around the edge, leaving an opening for turning the unit right side out.

ASSEMBLING THE PINCUSHION

Using a small funnel, fill the pumpkin with ground walnut shells. When it’s fully stuffed, sew the opening closed by hand.

Thread the large-eyed needle with the pearl cotton and tie a knot. Sew through the pumpkin by inserting the threaded needle from the top center where the seams intersect and pulling the needle out through the bottom center where the seams intersect.

Then, pull the thread up and around the pin cushion, nesting the thread along one of the seam lines, and sew again through the top center through to the bottom of the pumpkin. Repeat until all seams are lined with the pearl cotton. 

Sew the brown button to the top, securing the wool piece under the button. Tie off the thread ends under the wool leaf.
