A while back I wrote a post on how to make pumpkins. One of the pumpkins I posted had a little leaf alongside its stem. At that time I didn’t discuss the leaf because I wove it on a homemade fine sett loom. Since then Wunderwag Industries has released the 1″ square loom, so you can get a really cute, tiny leaf for the 2″ pumpkin. I used that and my fine sett or 2″ loom to make leaves for the other sizes.
It bugged me that I had to use super skinny yarn and my fine sett loom to get a proper size leaf for the 3″ pumpkin, so I decided to use my skillz to make a 1 1/2″ loom.
Stuff the pumpkins and insert the stems as shown in the original post.
ANNOUNCEMENT: Wunderwag Industries will now be selling 1.5″ looms. As of last night Joe has agreed to start making them. They are available for pre-order at $18 plus S&H. (They come with a 6″ weaving needle.)
Pumpkins make delightful little gifts—for Halloween, Fall, and Thanksgiving. I like to weave up a trio, using my homespun pumpkin-colored yarns, and deliver them in a little cellophane bag. (Incidentally, if you’re going to buy cellophane bags, I recommend 8″ x 10″ bags or a smaller-width bag with pleated sides.)
