TNT - Detachable Squishy Pumpkins :)

So this week I worked on a block for the Glorious Autumn Block Party.  (See post above).  And I tried something new with it.  I made detachable stuffed 2 sided appliques.  (or at least that is what I am calling them, I am sure there is an actual name for them :)  I have used the whole sew around the edge, turn through the hole, stuff, and close technique before but never with adding a buttonhole to the center to allow you the ability to attach and detach.

Here's the block.  Cute huh!!  It goes along with the story 5 Little Pumpkins.

So now, when we read the story, we can remove each pumpkin as the roll away :)  I just have to turn it into a pillow now so it is a little durable for the kids :)  Here's hoping I get to that before Halloween!!

So that's what I have been doing . . . How about you???

Link on up :)

  1. Awww this reminds me of a book my Mom made for us YEARS ago with shoes to tie and buttons to be buttoned and snaps and man I wonder if my sister (Helga LOL) has that one!

  2. I love that book. When I read to a class in October, I always include it. Cute rendition of the book, Melissa.

  3. Just catching up on all the posts since SS, sorry you didn't get away at all last weekend, love what you've been working on though (although 5 little pumpkins hasn't made it to either the UK or Australia, the straw poll in our camper van reveals ;o) )

  4. Holy smokes! That is just adorable!!!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
