Often there are little projects which float about in my head, they don’t even get written down in a list or drawn on the back of an envelope. After making the pumpkin teacosy, this little chap was a natural extension. Firstly it began as a pin cushion and then I realised that it would make a lovely place setting for a Harvest/Thanksgiving supper.
If you wanted to give the pumpkin more character then the addition of some beads and a little embroidered mouth would be pretty easy. The pattern is pretty simple and a really good starter for any amigurumi fan. Feel free to download the pattern here for free
I must however mention that my friend Jonathan pointed out very gracefully that I had declared my teacosy pumpkin to be a vegetable. But alas my friends it is a fruit… because of the seeds! He made me laugh out loud sending me this….
