If you follow us on Instagram or Periscope (@salvagesis) you may have seen a drop cloth curtain that was made for our closet.
Some material was leftover from the bottom of the drop cloth.
Whatever will we do?
*DISCLAIMER – This salvage sister believes there is a time and place for having all things perfect, and this is NOT one of them. As explained in the “scope”, “If I were to wait for the time I could do it perfectly measured and such, it would be a LONG awhile before it gets done.” My philosophy, something done pretty well is better than not at all. Anyone else?
DROP CLOTH PUMPKIN
The leftover strip was about 8″X14″ (ish).
There was a test seam done on the leftover material which inspired the pumpkin idea.
“Ding….if more I add more pleats I have a pumpkin!”
A pleat was made every 3″ or so.
After all the pleats were made the strip was sewn together to make a cuff.
Since no one was going to see the bottom, it was hand sewn together just to bring it together.
Next up, fill the pumpkin with leftover grocery bags. #reuse
Now, for a gathering stich on top.
**ANOTHER DISCLAMIER – This salvage sister didn’t even know the technical stich name. Thankfully periscope friends advised the proper name. That’s how little technical skills can go into this. ANYONE CAN DO IT!
What to do for the stem?
The original thought was to have a real pumpkin stem however pumpkins were a little scarce at that time.
Walk around the craft room a little and BAM (Not literally)!
LEFTOVER (do you sense a theme here?) burlap wired ribbon! #reuse
Wrap that baby around into a stem and there you have it.
AN EASY PEASY LEFTOVER PUMPKIN ANYONE CAN MAKE!
