well, the way i make these is by needle felting, which is a very non copmlicated sculptral process. Its a 2 hr. workshop, that has yet to be scheduled, but will be up soon hopefully at www.wildfibreyarns.com

wingnut - i love your stuff. can you tell me/us about how much wool you use to make the pumpkins? are they packed tight? about how long do you spend on each one? i've been making some, but i think i'm using too much wool because they are super tight and therefore they take a lot of time to make. also, do you use wool for the whole thing? i have been winding up a little ball of yarn for the center so that i can save on the wool roving. any advice would be mucho appreciated.

They should be tight, and take quite a bit of time. (at least 20 min each)
Also, i use wool for the whole thing, because i like to be true to the material. But i do wet felt little balls to work around. It speeds up the process a bit. (i hope your not paying too much for wool. anything more than 20 dollars a pound is a rip off.)

you know, that's exactly what i was thinking - about being true to the material. i didn't pay too much, but i just didn't have much pumpkin color on hand. thanks a bunch for the tips. i wish i lived in your area because i'd love to take your felting class.

ha. i wish i wasnt that picky, but thats what art school does to you. it makes everything from hot glue to acrylic yarn is entirely unnaceptable! and then its programed into your brain... sigh...
