My favorite

Jason and I LOVE the fall...I don't know if it's because that's when we were falling in love, and planning a wedding, or if it's because of the colors all over in the trees, the smells, and our favorite dessert, pumpkin pie. But it's the best! I'm seriously getting goosebumps just writing about it. I wish it came twice a year (no more summer and swimming suits...blah!). Anyway, most of you blogstalk my cousin's wife, Holly, the Mormon Martha of the world. She's amazing. And MOST of you have been making these stinkin cute pumpkins. And SOME of you asked me to post mine when I was done. I can't wait, so here's the few that I have done. I'm making oh, um, about 3 dozen...ha! I know, extreme, but they're soo easy, and pretty cheap to make, so I figured I'd make some for a few friends, neighbors, party prizes, and prizes for Jase's office, oh and of coarse a set for my sweet mutha who is letting me use her sewing machine at night, and who is also handstiching the bottoms of these since I HATE hand stitching more than anything...thanks ma, love ya! So here's a few on my piano..... a few on my buffet table.....
And I had to zoom in on this picture, because we only have it for a couple of days. We got it framed for Jase's office. It is the same frame that his diploma and license and everything else is in...he's soo excited to get it all up on the wall, I think I'll do it for him for his birthday while he's gone. Anyway, isn't it cute?!
I was going ot take pictures of the rest of my pumpkins all over my house, but I figured you'd get the picture. I'm on hold right now because the rest of my fabric isn't in yet. Anyway, now I'm off to make 10 pumpkin pies...that's right TEN! Jase said instead of cake for his birthday he wants pumpkin pie, and our guest list keeps growing, so I need to start whippin these suckers out!!! Yum!
Oh, and thanks a ton for the inspiration and directions Holly, I'm going to make your "little people" next, then I need some more ideas...so, get crackin!

While you're at it and since you love making them so much, you won't mind making me some will you?????

Jessica said...

Okay! Where are the instructions for those pumkins! They are so dang cute! Fall is my favorite time of the year too, I love it!

Vonda said...

Danica and I are making them on my B-day week in the fancy craft room at Randas spec house. Doesnt that sound fun? Come make some more with us. Also, go and vote for a monkey baby on my blog:-)

Holly said...

Oh, I LOVE them! Good job on the fabric and sewing - they look DANG cute! I need to get mine out and spruce my house up. Oh wait! My house will soon be covered in drywall dust. Maybe I'll just have to wait until my house is a bit back to normal, before I go digging out anymore decorations. Oh and this whole flood thing has put a HUGE damper on my craft plans. I've got a few crafts waiting in the wings, calling my name, begging me to ignore my children and bills and life. Ho hum! Love you girl!

Those are so dang cute! Yes you need to post a pattern. ANd what are "little people"?

Raysha said...

Fall is my fave too! Okay, I think there are enough of us that want to make those adorable pumpkins that you need to share the love and do a tutorial!!

Alona said...

We're all fall buddies! It's my favorite for sure and I'll add my compliments on the pumpkins to everyone else's! They're so cute!

Katee said...

Honestly-how long does it take to make each one (after you've bought the stuff)? Love them but don't want to get into a project that ends up taking hours!

Kristal said...

um, can't say for sure, because I did each step at different times. I cut them all out during nap time (and stems and the weight pockets for the bottom) and that took about an hour, but I did 3 sets at once. And then it took another nap time to sew them all...which was about an hour...I'm a horrible sewer though...not sewer, seamstress?. Anyway, I'm sure a normal person could get them done in half the time. They are seriously SO EASY! And so fast. I am a half finisher of projects, Honeslty, I'll have to take a picture of all of my half finished projects, but this one was fast enough that I finished it! yay! just do it katee! you know you want to!

Katee said...

I do want too...but like you I have all those half finished projects that I started and then lost interest.....but I do love these and if I can whip them out fast-I'll complete it. By the way...we just recently made the cutest tu-tu's. Do you know to make them? They were fun and easy and cheap. Great gifts for little girls bday parties!!!

Kristal said...

that's another half finished...AND finished project. I used to make them and sell them on e bay (another thing I learned from Holly) and Kam has about half a dozen, but i still have almost a whole closet full of tulle to make more. I need to make a b unch for kam's friends and throw a party or something. Fun stuff...give me more ideas!
