Sewing a pumpkin patch

Week two and we started class with a short book. These smart cookies guessed we were talking pumpkins well before the end of the story.

I asked which students had been to a local pumpkin patch and I think everyone raised their hand. And most boasted about veggie gardens at home. So fantastically Portlandia!

With pumpkins in mind, it was time to start sewing. Our activity turned out to be a challenge for many but I hope they enjoyed the process of learning the running stitch, the first step to making these little stuffed decorations. See, we had a mini pumpkin on hand for inspiration.

 With a bit more time I'm sure we can finish our pumpkin patch. Look how cute this felt pumpkin is!

 Thanks to Twig and Toadstool for this idea! Visit their blog for a complete tutorial.
