I made this for KarenLouiseM in the vintage Halloween swap -- it's a little pumpkin guy made from a spool and vintage cardboard bobbins. (I have a million of these and was glad to finally use them in a project! I see more pumpkins in my future!)



The pumpkin is made out of paper clay. He's decorated with a wooden star button that I painted, as well as a vintage toy tire that I have been hoarding. The base is a cardboard round with scrapbooking paper on it for some fun.

Thanks for looking!

I just love this so much, from his wistful expression to the stack of spools and embellishments. He's perfect!

Thanks so much, rackycoo! I have to say, it felt a bit racky-esque when I was done with it. Cheesy

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
