Apostrophy Designs: Pleasant Pumpkin Surprise Tutorial

Pleasant Pumpkin Surprise Tutorial

Have you ever been "Boo-ed!" or have wanted a cute gift to give a teacher or friend for Halloween?

Well let me PUMP-kin you up!

(Just kidding that was lame, I know)

So before I mentioned Super Saturday coming up...well one of our activities are these "fairy bags".

After much thought I figured out how to turn the fairy bag into a pleasantly surprising pumpkin that you can fill full of treats and other Spooktacular things!

Ok you need four squares (will make two pumpkins, mine are about 10 inches I would've gone bigger except my fabric pieces were scraps): two orange and two different greens.

Cut your greens into four triangles and stitch them together alternating.

You will end up with four squares that look like the above.

Now sew one orange and the green squares with right sides together, leaving an opening to turn inside out.

Turn inside out and stitch along the outer edge.

Flip over to orange side and fold green corners in and stitch across the top.

Thread ribbon or string through twice at opposite openings...


Then place a treat or two in the middle and pull the strings to make the pumpkin.

Now off to do some "Boo-ing"

I will post some cute Fairy bag pictures soon, they would make some cute flower covers for Christmas and Birthday gifts!!

P.S. and where is Bergs?? Making a mess! Ha ha guess that's what I get for crafting!

All your cute stuff is making me really want to sew and make things- when can I find the time:) I don't know how you do it all. I need your enrichment activity ideas- I am the counselor over it. We did just make 200 really cute baby leg warmers to donate to Primary childrens- do you know how to make those out of knee high socks- it is SO easy and cute. Let me know if you want me to email you the tutorial:)
