The Velveteen Pumpkin

There once was a Velveteen Pumpkin....
That was sewn by this little ole country bumpkin...

It started out as a few pieces of fabric...
but with just a little love and a little magic...
Soon came to life with button eyes and a braided trim smile...
A fancy hat brimming with style...

On a pedestal of silver she sits like royalty...
In return she thanks the country bumpkin with love and loyalty...

****

Then of course they lived happily ever after..
Tee hee hee...:)

The End

Blossom,

I just wanted to make a fancy looking pumpkin wearing a hat... I found the right pattern, and I already had the vintage fabric that I used for the hat and the silver and velvet buttons. Then I found the burnt orange velveteen at the fabric store and thats how the idea came together.
