I used the pattern for the 4 inch pumpkin. The wool felt pieces are appliqued with a blanket stitch. The leaf is also made from felt and lightly stuffed with fiberfill. The pumpkin tendrils are made from jute that was coated with Tacky Glue and wound around a knitting needle to set.
Now, if only I knew someone who had a loose tooth or two...

- Read a Book about an Area of Interest:: check!
- Find Inspiration and Do Something about It:: check!
Seeing the movie Julie & Julia twice recently inspired me to find a little challenge of my own. Yes, I want to be a bit of a copycat and experiment and blog about the results within a fixed time limit. Just like Julie.
It would be highly unlikely that I would find a cookbook and create all the recipes as I am not a "foodie" or even wish to become one. So what to do? The solution nearly fell right into my lap. As I sat at my computer, Amazon "suggested" I buy a certain book based upon some of my past purchases. It had all the elements going for it - "repurposing," sewing, creating little treasures that a certain little dear one might like (eventually), and using what I have on hand and have been saving for special projects.
And I already have the woolen blanket on hand and ready to go! It is rescued from the packing blanket pile and is a lovely shade of soft green.
