    They had these at our LQS last year ... here and there around the shop for fall decorations.

    To plump out the pumpkin a little, cover the toilet paper with some poly batting first, then put on the FQ.

    Strange enough the FQ sales rose during that time for all the appropriate fall colours, as all the quilters just had to have a pumpkin of their own.

    I made a bunch of these a couple of years ago. Everyone thought it was a cute idea. Fun easy project.

    Twist up a paper sack and stick it in for the stem. Also, add some leaves and stick them in before you put in the stem.

    I made a bunch of those a few years ago. I did the stem a little different. I took a piece of brown bag (5 inches long), rolled it into a tight roll and then doubled it. Then you wind twine around it (glueing as you go).When it dries, stick it into the hole (put a little glue around edge to make it stick). I put them around the house in the fall.

    I was at a meeting last spring and they had used floral prints and felt leaves. Cute.

    For the stem, I usually take olive green felt and cut it into 3" strips and roll it up and stick it in the top with some silk leaves.

    I would add some fiberfill to make it more round, but that is a great idea. Thanks for sharing.
