Hi Craftsters!

I joined the Autumn/Halloween ninni swap with my favourite organizers Leslieshappyheart and Susanab this month and want to share with you the ninni I made for my partner teag.

She likes pumpkins and had this pumpkin figurines on her Wist with an incredibly ridiculous smile/grin. I went with those, altered the ninni pattern to make it more round like a pumpkin and added that smile/grin.

Et voilà I present to you..... PUMPKIN!


I stuffed him (I think Pumpkin is a male) in a paper bag and added a little sign "boo". Just for the Halloween-trick-or-treat-feeling. (Not that we celebrate Halloween, but this is like I imagine it to be)


Since I had so much fun making this ninni, I added a small orange ninni as a sort of little brother or stuffie. The card with the pumpkins was also made by me.


Here is the gallery for the other great, fun, scary ninni's!
The ninni pattern can be found at RevoluzZzionary.


Thanks for looking! Comments and critiques or questions are all welcome!  Smiley

The mouth on your ninni is fabulous (not too spooky, but spooky enough!)...

I loved how you embraced the USA holiday and had fun with your pumpkin ninni!

He is adorable!!!

This guy cracks me up! I would love to find him out trick or treating!!

His grin is absolutely fantastic (reminds me of when kids smile TOO hard during pictures), and the details you put in to him are great!

I LOVE him.

Thanks ladies! I appreciate your comments a lot!

I just had so much fun making this Ninni. I like the excitement of swapping and the feeling of getting inspiration.
When I showed Pumpkin at work (I work at a school), my co-workers all wanted one, hahaha!
But I like my ninni too! An awesome Autumn ninni.

Thanks again  Cheesy

Beautiful and fun ninis keep popping up one after the other. And I thought I didn't like ninis. I was wrong.

Your pumpkin nini is adorable. If he came to my door, I would immediately hand him the treats.

Hahaha, well they always tell me to sell my work OR they try to convince me to hand over the swapping item  Wink It never works though! I like to sew and swap, and wouldn't want to be to sell. Just wouldn't work for me.

My co-workers come whenever they need some sort of inspiration or ideas for crafting for the kids. It usually doesn't take long to give them several ideas  Grin It would be great if that would make me one of the popular teachers there!

And as for swapping, I so love the feeling of inspiration and to be able to combine ideas I have with Wist/Pinterest and my partner favourites... it really is very addicting!

Haha, well yes, you'd better do that! You'll never know what Pumpkin would do if he wouldn't be given some nice treats  Wink
Thanks!
