Felt Pumpkin People

Surprise!  I found another amazing craft on
 Click here for some Martha craft inspiration.  
The original creations are by Jennifer Murphy.  She makes the most amazing stuffed animals and now ceramics.  You will be inspired by her beautiful site.

This is my first attempt at a Felt Pumpkin Person using most of the directions provided on Martha's website.  Click here to try it yourself.
If you've reviewed the tutorial provided by Martha, you'll see there are a few differences (besides the quality...aren't Jennifer's amazing!)  First, I couldn't find velvet leaves at my handy dandy Hobby Lobby.  Just used the ones they had in the bridal section.  Also, I had lots of  polyester stuffing.  I took a look around HL for the wood shavings filler, but couldn't find any. That really worked out best because I need to use what I have.
For some reason, my felt circles are two different sizes, but look the same stuffed.  I'll make some adjustments next time.  (which will probably be later today!)
I have my orange felt soaking in my left over morning coffee as we speak.  Another idea I'm going to try is giving that little leaf some glitter.  Stay tuned!
