I made these using the neverending stash of hand dyed orange wool. I cut 6 identical leaf shapes from assorted wool and sewed them together with the seam on the outside to suggest the ribs of a pumpkin. I have used the same shape to create a round ball of fabric in the past. This differs in only that the seams are on the outside and the smooth part is on the inside. If I had turned these inside out and sewed them closed the result would have been similar to this.I added a stem to each one made from some felted brown sweater wool, rolled up into a tube and sewn together like a felt cigar. A leaf cut from some green felted wool adds some more color.
