No-Sew fabric pumpkin (or apple)

OK.  I haven't posted a craft in awhile so today I'm going to post a super easy craft.  This can be made with orange fabric for a pumpkin or with red for an apple.  this is really super easy with no sewing no gluing  involved.

  • 1 piece of  fabric (approx. 18inX21in.) orange (pumpkin) or red (apple)
  • 1 piece of quilt batting (approx. 15inX9in.)
  • 1 roll of toilet paper (any size works but the double or triple will make for a plumper fruit)
  • 1 4-5 in twig for stem
  • 1 or 2 sprigs of silk leaf 

Lay your toilet paper roll on top of batting and roll them up together like so....

Now lay out your piece of fabric and stand the batting wound toilet paper in the middle.

Take the corners of the fabric and proceed to tuck them into the middle of the toilet paper roll.  if edges of material are frayed you can hid them by folding them in and tucking them away in the folds.  Move all the way around the roll til you have all the corners tucked in.

Add your leaf and stem by placing them in the center of the toilet paper roll.  They should stay tucked right in real nice.  It's very easy, peasy.  Now you have a nice fall decoration.

I'm going to try something new.  I'm putting a Mr. Linky up for a week and you may add a craft that you have posted for others to visit.  Let's see how it goes.
