The part I love most about this fabric pumpkin easy sewing project is the 100% usage of fabric scraps- if you’re so inclined. I am always looking for ways to use up the never ending heap of scraps of all sizes on my sewing room floor. The pattern piece sizes required for this project are such that you need look no further than the scrap pile- for the entire project. Amen.
