Craft Your Own Fall Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkins don't have to rot. Pumpkins don't have to go away after Halloween. Pumpkins don't even have to be orange. All of this is true if you make your own cloth pumpkins. Fat quarters, old shirts, Mod Podge and some twine is about all you need to craft your own pumpkin patch.
Amy over at Naptime Crafter has been a busy fall crafting bee while her kids were snoozing. She has been whipping up a batch of low-sew fat quarter pumpkins. Hit the quilting section of your local fabric store, look for shades of orange and brown in the quilting fabric and you are just a few running stitches and some twine away from an adorable fall mantle.
Did someone say no-sew? That is my kind of craft. Not to mention I love the up-cycled aspect of these shirt pumpkins by Confessions of a Plate Addict. I can hardly wait to hit the thrift store to find fall colored shirts to cut and stuff. Oh and those curly tendrils and pumpkin toppers. Too cute!
So which one do you think you will try to make first?
