Falling for Pumpkins and Sunflowers!!


Last year I became obsessed with pumpkins and sunflowers so of course I went online to see how to make different kinds of pumpkins and added my own flair. I already had a pattern for sunflowers, so here's what I made....
I got the pattern for the sunflowers from a 1997 Country Marketplace magazine. I had planned on making them back then but never got around to it. Those are dryer duct pumpkins I also made laying below the sunflowers.

Some of the pumpkins I made with leftover fabric using doilies, ribbon roses, lace trim and whatever else I could get my hands on for embellishments.

A chicken wire pumpkin I made too.  I find it really cool looking :)
