You don’t need to be a sewing professional to make these embroidery hoop pumpkins.

I’ll tell you a little secret … I’m a terrible seamstress. I can sew in a straight line, and that’s it. But that has nothing to do with my love of fabric shopping. Stroll the fabric aisles to the craft store if my happy place. So whenever I find a craft that allows me to use a cute fabric I find and I don’t have to sew … I’m 100% there for it!

If you haven’t already noticed, I absolutely love anything rustic style. From christmas stockingsto the piles of fake books, I was excited to try this circle craft to add an autumn flair.

And speaking of embroidery hoops, there are many creative thingsyou can do with them. And let me tell you, some of these get HIGHLY creative 😉

Just to give you a little fabric shopping tip: you can buy fat fabric quarters to get a variety of plaids without spending a lot of money.
