Sewing has never been my strong suit. My mom, who was a home economics major in college in the sixties, did her best to teach me how to sew. I even had some minor instruction in junior high school. Unfortunately, it didn’t really stick. While I played around with sewing after college, I found I was always fighting my sewing machine. It would constantly come unthreaded. And dragging out the manual to rethread the darn thing was super challenging for me. Not to mention the drama of stitches getting snagged in the fabric. Sewing really wasn’t something I ever found the patience for. That’s part of the reason why I love this buffalo check pumpkin project so much. There’s no sewing required!
Luckily, making your own pumpkin fall decor doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult. In fact, it’s really quite easy to design and create fall crafts for your home without having to learn how to sew.
