My Original Sweet Sweater Pumpkins

When my favorite sweaters became too stretched-out and threadbare to wear in 2007, I designed and created these sweet little fall pumpkins!
Since then, I've made thousands of them to sell at vintage shows on the West coast. They are available for sale in select retail stores, will be at the Remnants of the Past show in California in October, and are also for sale on my blog.
Feeling crafty? You can also purchase my tutorial and make your own versions!

    I purchased the sweater pumpkin tutorial yesterday and thought it would be emailed to me by now. But I haven't seen it on my email. Is this tutorial going to be mailed to me? There wasn't any place for a mailing address. Did I miss getting it when I paid? Please let me know.
    • @Val Warnick Since over a year ago, we determined that my original email response to you with the tutorial had been sent but had gone into your spam folder, would you mind removing this comment? I'd hate for those coming here following a Pinterest link to read your complaint and think that I do not provide what they have paid for. Thank you so much!
