A year ago I bought this kit to make a pumpkin magnet. It was a quick project so I should not have put it off for so long.

The squares were ironed on to a grid printed on something similar to interfacing. Then the rows and columns were sewn. I did make a mistake on the leaves on top, if I make another pumpkin I'd leave them off completely.

After our club's Invitational I was thinking of what would make a nice table favor for next year...maybe a pumpkin pincushion? I tried a couple of different patterns I found online free to see how hard the project would be. Some took a little time but the pumpkin with the stick stem was a less than 30 minute project.

So incredibly cute! What a great take on the pincushion tomato.
