Pumpkin Surprise

Did you guess what the surprise would be on my pumpkins?
 They have four faces! 

 The top one’s four faces are smiling, scary, winking and sleepy. 

The middle one’s faces are all smiling,

and the bottom one is all scary faces! 

It took a lot of stitching to make these guys 
but I had a lot of fun even if my fingers did get a little sore! 
I used some of my hand dyed wool fabric on the scary ones body 
and spent way too much time sorting out buttons to find just the right ones for their faces.

Here is the Four Faced Pumpkins with some of their friends in the studio.

That snowball is still lurking around all the pumpkins 

so I know you can guess what he is up too!


  1. Hi Louise,
    You did such a beautiful job on your pumpkins and I love the idea of the 4 creative and fun!!
    My fingers have felt like that many times, but when we love what we do, the pain is just part of the whole creative process and the end result is worth it!! Great work!!!
    Have a lovely weekend!
    Warm Hugs~

    1. Thank you Julie! Sore fingers and tired eyes are worth it sometimes!

  2. What a lot of work went into these! You must love Halloween!

    1. Actually I don't care that much for Halloween. I love all that goes with Fall from pumpkins, Autumn colors, cooler weather and on into November with turkeys. This is the first time I have made scary pumpkin faces!

  3. I had no idea that this would be the surprise...Those Mood Pumpkins are sensational and are sure showing your creative side. Wow... that's a lot of work and they are so unique. They will be grabbed quickly I'm sure.
    Have a great weekend.

  4. What a great idea! Love them! Have a great day!
