My version of a pumpkin patch...

I hope your not sick of seeing the pumpkins yet, cuz OH MY GOODNESS I have been having fun making some for a local store...
They are so fun to make, seriously fun :) and they are even more fun to decorate! I was on a roll and completed all of these in between work, kids and making dinners. Unfortunately I cannot in good conscience add cleaning the house in there because I did not, and I make a huge mess when I am creating, so my dining room table is covered in wool and doodads and so is the work room, the kitchen table is full of a sewing machine and all that goes with it. So tonight I need to clean up and then...
you guessed it, make more pumpkins! Now I need to make them for their second store! WOO HOO! I hope they sell, the owner seemed to like them, I hope her customers do! I hope to get some finished for etsy too, gotta fill the shop!
Still on the rosette kick too...
This one is loaded with vintage millinery and a cool bird pendant, and it is huge, I made it with the body of the sweater.
An all white grouping, I made a couple with vintage tinsel, love the white and tarnished tinsel together, perfect for the upcoming holidays.
There are so many ways to decorate them, but ofcourse my favorite way is with vintage BLING!!! It's vintage, it's jewels, whats not to love? ;o

So putting on my cleaning music now and gonna try to find the top of the tables and maybe even the floor! wish me luck!!

I am linking up to a couple of wonderful parties so get your party hats on and come along for the ride... Debra @ Common Ground is having her vintage inspiration friday party combined with a fall porch party only a true partier can handle 2 parties at one time!!! Thanks Debra!
Also Cindy from Whimsical Musings is holding her Creative Spirit Challenge, come be inspired by all of your fellow bloggettes!
Also @ Tea Rose Home for her weekly link love party, thank you Sachiko!
If you would like to make your own pumpkin patch scroll down a couple of posts where I posted the blog that has the tutorial.

Thanks for stopping by the pumpkin patch! Theresa xoxo

  2. OMGosh Theresa I seen these this week and had to make some, I went out today and hit up a bunch of yard sales and got a bunch of old sweaters and even found some lace and old doilies, and I even met an older lady who GAVE me a bunch of old seam binding packages and, get this, a bunch of tatting that her Mother had made and never used! Can you believe that, I tried to pay her and she wouldn't take anything for it, (I think I'll have to make her a little pumpkin and drop it off to her!) nothing cost me over $1 and most less then that from the other yard sales! I will definetly link back to your blog and send you a few pics when I'm done if you would like, it may take a bit though, I have a few Design Team things I have to do but want to start on them this weekend. Thanks for the inspiration, I just love your blog!

  4. Was just coming by because I never comment on mr crazy eyes and for a second time your blog was blank. You scared me thought your blog got deleted by blogger or something.WHeW!
    Then I saw this post oh my gosh I love those plump little buggers. I love the way you've embellished them. I tried making one the other morning really quickly with practice fabric and it was just ok. I'll have to give it another go.
    I'm sure you'll sell a ton of these. They're adorable.

  14. Theresa,

    They are fabulous plump little guys- so cute. I'm betting they are a sell out
    lickety split! Sounds like everyone is going sweater pumpkin crazy. I may have to give it a try when things settle down next week. I sold off nearly all my Halloween collectibles so things are a mite spare ...something like these would perk up the space and help me use up the cupboard of old sweaters in the garage....

    Look how inspiring you are being....and you make great soap too! : )

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  21. Oh Thesera they are just adorable, who could get sick of seeing pumpkins? Who I ask you?
    I am so glad that they are doing so well for you!
    You put so much into them that they are a standout from any others that i have ever seen.
    Now for that project runway, that challenge was so right up my alley and what a dud. I was hoping to see new and different but eek, what a mess but the drama ohh the drama sooo good.

  34. Theresa, this is truly one of the cutest craft projects I've seen in a long time. I'm inspired to try them myself, and since the white version doesn't look too season-specific, I think they could be used almost year-round as a decorative display.
