Oh..I almost forgot…there is a bonus…if you carefully cut out Esmerelda’s facial features you can add them to another piece of wool for another pumpkin!  You will need a piece of wool for a pumpkin and stone wool for the stem and fabric for the back.

I also made another pattern for Fall…I know you all loved the We Three Gnomes, so I decided to make a Halloween version called Frightful Gnomes.I love stitching up these fun little projects and remember just because I am pillow obsessed doesn’t mean you have to make yours into a pillows…these can be wall hangings or framed pieces as well!
