As I was roaming the interwebs looking for pumpkin ideas, I came across this plush pumpkin tutorial. The instructions weren't totally clear but I eventually got the point. I can also think of a easier way to make this, with less hand-stitching. Maybe I'll try out my idea sometime. But it still came out pretty cute.
Though it's hard to see in this picture, I actually handstitched veins on the leaves rather than using a glitter pen per the instructions.
