Make your own pumpkins with handmade stems using the directions in this PDF. It includes directions to make pumpkins in several sizes. I have always loved pumpkins, so I created a stem pattern that is included as well. You will enjoy making these pumpkins and will be able to put your own personal touch on each one as my stems are designed so that there are no two exactly alike.

Note: In addition to the materials for the pumpkins and stems, you will need a sewing machine with straight stitch as well as basic sewing skills for this pattern.

If you are interested in the stem pattern alone you will find it here:

What you will receive:

To scale printable PDF with patterns for small, medium and large pumpkin stems ** and pumpkin body patterns, easy-to-follow directions with color photos and excellent customer service. I f you should have any questions during the process of making your stems, feel free to contact me with questions. I am happy to help:)

**Sizes of pumpkins I used for stems – can be used according to preference.
Small approximately 3-1/2" across x 1-1/2" high (not including stem) about the six of a pumpkin gourd.
Medium fits approximately 2" high (not including stem) and approximately 5" across the top
Large fits approximately 2.75" high (not including stem) and approximately 6" across the top

Loved turning this pattern into a wedding reception centerpiece for my daughter’s wedding, I wish I could attach a picture. They were easy to make and turned out just as we’d hoped.
