Mom's Pumpkins!

They're back! It's been a while since my mom last created a crop of cranky, sleepy, laughing needle felted baby pumpkins...but she's been hard at work and finally has a few ready for Halloween! Right now she only has three available. If you're interested, you'll find them in my Etsy shop....but hurry, they tend to go fast!

Each one has been sculpted completely from wool...really...solid wool. They're amazing! Mom has been sculpting for over 20 years and has been needle felting for the last 8 or so years. She really has mastered her technique and is a total perfectionist...you can see the detail she puts into each one. I can't stop gushing about them!

I think the crying ones are my favorites. And I promise...they don't make noise!

The white ones go with my decor.

This almost looks like the man on the moon...

This one doesn't make any noise either.


Thank you so much for stopping by!! I'd love to hear what you think about my mom's crazy pumpkin babies...I relish each comment you guys make! :)
