Well its been awhile since I have added to my blog. I have been making Pumpkin Plushies. I found some velvet material remnants at a thrift store and bought some new orange crushed velvet. I loved making these. They were very easy. I cut a circle in the fabric and sewed the edge like a drawstring and stuffed it with some stuffing I had hanging around in my craft room. I made the stems with rope and some soft tie garden coated wire. I found that it made the stem nice and flexible. Funny, I found this rubber coated wire in my husband's stuff, ran out and tried to find more. It turned out that everyone was making masks with it and the stores were out, but of course, Amazon had some at triple the price. It regularly about $3.75 at Home Depot but I guess Opportunists are what they are.
