My first handmade pumpkin

I tryed my hand on my first pumpkin today!! alwayes wanted to do some, but
till now ,it stayed in my head as a wish.
I used different white and tan materials to sew it up.

Then added beautifull laces, Skeleton leaves

An old wood stock

and different twigs-real ones and made
of wire.Lastly a little silver glitter.

I surely will make more , like so much the real ones
and think that even this one enden up a bit flat, I like
it alot.
Hope you all had , and have a beautifull day,

Hi Dorthe your pumpkin is very beautiful, love the lace - hvor sjovt jeg har også lige syet et græskar men i gul thaisilke og med grøn stilk, købte mønstret for flere år siden, har lige været ved at rydde op og da fandt jeg det, så jeg skulle lige prøve sy det (har lige købt et stort pyntegræskar med fine aftegninger, og det var det der sætte det igang) det er låget indvendig der er dekoreret på min lille dåse, håber du må få en rigtig god weekend.
De kærligste hilsner fra Anni
