A few weeks ago, I sat down to make some pumpkins. I struggled to find a pattern I really loved (clearly, I hadn’t found the awesome pumpkins from this blog hop yet!) and was easy to make. I wanted a pumpkin that ridged on it’s own and required very little shaping from me. Thus, I give you…Witch Way to the Pumpkin Patch!
These fun, textured puff stitch pumpkins come in three sizes:
Small: 2.5” w x 2” h (3” with stem)
Medium: 3.5” w x 3” h (4” with stem)
Large: 4.5” w x 3.5” h (6” with stem/hat)
In addition to three sizes, there are three stem options: plain stem, stem with vines, and a witch’s hat.
One of my favorite things to use these pumpkins for is to make wreaths like the one pictured above. For this, I needed some leaves. Creativity to the rescue!
Here’s my free pumpkin leaf pattern to go with your awesome Witch Way to the Pumpkin Patch pattern!!
