Make a Bandana Pumpkin

HI everyone! I am joining Create with Joy’s Inspire Me Monday Blog Hop ( I know it is Wednesday). I am obsessed with Pinterest and found some cute pumpkins made out ofΒ  bandanas on SadieSeasonGoods. I changed it a little and made mine into a catnip/silvervine pumpkin.

100_9695 100_9722Β  I cut an orange bandana in half, then folded it inside out and stitched it on 3 sides with the sewing machine. I filled it with polyfil and catnip then hand stitched the top. Then I used embroidery floss* to sew some lines on the pumpkin. And to top it off I stuck a silvervine stick in the top for a stem. I got the silvervine stick from CatABliss on Etsy.

*I only let me cats play with this under supervision because of the embroidery floss. No one has tried to chew it, but you never know.

The word today for #JHC is blood, but I decided to go with eyeball instead. And the winner of Phoebe’s eyeball giveaway is : The Island Cats-Congratulations! 100_9687

    1. Embroidery floss is like a thick thread so some cats may chew it off and ingest it. XO

  6. People who can sew and create things fascinate me. That’s a neat looking pumpkin!
