My Last SIWL Project

I can't believe it's been a whole year now since I joined the Say It With Letters Design Team! It's been so much fun to work with Deb and all the other super talented designers on the team! It's always amazed me at how differently all our projects end up looking each month - so inspiring! Deb's got a brand new team this year (with a couple returning members) so you'll be excited I'm sure to see even more different styles!

But, before I bid a fond farewell I have one final project to share. I just love this Pumpkin shape - so perfect for this time of year! I had a hard time deciding what to do with mine but then I had a lightbulb moment . . . a cork board would be fun to get out each year and hang by the door or phone! I've had these 12"x12" squares of cork (bought at Walmart I believe) for a while now - perfect. I simply traced the pumpkin shape onto the cork, cut out out and glued it onto my shape. Then I searched through all my fabric scraps for some leftovers of a Fall-themed table runner I made several years ago (still unfinished I might add!). I just cut the scraps into 1.5" squares and starting sewing them together. I'll admit that my sewing here is not the greatest - but I wasn't going for precise this time! :) Once I had a big enough piece to cover my pumpkin, I simply stretched it around the edges and used a hot glue gun to glue it to the back of the pumpkin. At some of the corners I did some clipping to get the fabric in nice and tight.

I can't wait to hang this up and get out the rest of my fall decorations! If you visit Deb's blog you'll see what the rest of the DT did for their projects - there's some spooky fun!! :) Have a great day!
