Velour Pumpkins

November is flying so I wanted to share these velour pumpkins and wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.  A short post today since these pumpkins have been all over the internet and, of course, I had to make some!
I made two sizes in two colors and there not real velvet or velour.  Go to the fabric store and ask for crushed panne.  It's a LOT less expensive!
Since I saved some pumpkin stems from last year, I used them on the big ones.  
The small ones got branches for stems, but they did get a bit "dressed-up".
In case you're wondering how the stems were attached, I used tacky glue and a rubber band:

That's it!
It's that time of year when I take a couple of weeks off for Thanksgiving.  I'll be back in December with some projects, then it's off for Christmas. 

Wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving.  
See you in December!
