How to Make a Pumpkin

You will need scissors, a needle, fabric, stuffing, strong thread or twine, and cinnamon sticks.

Start off by cutting a circle out of your fabric - it doesn't have to be perfect!

Sew a running stitch around the edge about 2.5cm in, leaving a good length of thread at the beginning and end.

Holding both ends tightly, pull to gather up your fabric to form a bowl shape.

Fill with your stuffing, and pull the threads tighter to close up your pumpkin, leaving a small hole to push in the fabric edges later on.

Tie your thread ends, ensuring they are nice and tight. Trim the threads to about 3cm.

Thread a needle with a good length of either your strong thread or twine and tie a knot in the end to prevent it from pulling through the fabric.

Thread from the top around the outside, dividing your pumpkin in half, and thread through the top to secure this long stitch. Pull a little taught, creating an indent on the outside of your pumpkin.

Continue doing this until you have divided your pumpkin up into 8 segments (4 times around the outside).

Tie your thread or twine tightly at the top and trim off to about 3cm.

Carefully tuck in the excess fabric and thread ends into the hole you left in the top of your pumpkin.

Take a cinnamon stick and push it firmly into the top.

Congratulations, you now have a beautiful pumpkin!!
