I had this bag pinned but the pin I had didn't go anywhere and I couldn't find another (until now, of course, haha) so I decided to try to figure it out myself. I love how it turned out though it is not exactly like the original. My folds hide the fabric inside the slashes quite a bit, I'm not sure how one would create more poofiness to show that off.



It's made of panels sewn together in a long strip, then the outer fabric (orange in this case) is folded to hide away the inner. I pinned then stitched this in place.


Then the bottom edge is pleated to create the pumpkin rounded shape.


This strip of binding I made was sewn to the outter bag and left until the lining was ready to be added.


The lining is a rectangle cut to exactly the same size as the finished folded panels of the outside. I didn't use any real measurements so I can't share those, I simply eyeballed the right diameter for what I had in mind. The circle for the bottom of the bag was calculated using pi. I find it easier to match up a circle with a straight bit of fabric if I quarter and pin both, then match up those pins. The lining wasn't pleated, just gathered to fit.



Now the bag was turned right side out and the lining inserted. The binding got folded over to the inside at this point. I could have sewed it by hand but I stitched in the ditch on the front taking care to make sure I was catching the binding on the inside.


Then a green cord was inserted through the channel with beads added to the ends and voila, fini!

I bought 2 kinds of orange fabric & that cobweb pumpkin in another shade as well. Now that I've found what looks like a link to the original pattern I may try it out just to see what I did differently. It wasn't difficult, just fiddly with all the pieces, folding, pnning, pressing.
