Rustic Patchwork Pumpkins

Mr. Glitter Tart has been hard at work on my studio and this weekend I moved out of the dingy dungenous garage corner I was in and into a slightly more finished studio (the floors and some walls are done).  While moving my precious supplies I came across some fabrics I'd forgotten about and with the autumn air finally rolling in (temporarily I'm sure) the leaves turning color and my sewing machine reachable I was inspired.

I made three different sizes, although none are the same so it's more like size ranges.  These are the little ones, aren't they just so cute, the smallest one measures 9 inches in diameter and 3 inches tall, with the stem. 

And doesn't the medium size look great all stacked up together with one of my fabulous glittered clothespin magnets!  I think the medium is my favorite size so many possibilities.  The largest one of these is 24 inches in diameter and 6 inches tall, the smallest is only 17 inches in diameter. 

This is the large size, 30 inches in diameter and 7 inches tall.  I attached a fabulous appreciation gift tag that I received from Kimberly over at ArtJoyStuff  I was so thrilled to receive this one of a kind tag from her that I just had to showcase it!  Make sure to check out her blog and etsy stores her work is fabulous!

And guess what, you can get one, some or none :(  of these pumpkins by visiting my Etsy store, Glitter Tart Designs

I have had a great time making them and think that I will head downstairs and pull out some more fabrics and see what I come up with.
