Tips for sewing a pumpkin with Cuddle® minky plush fabric

  • Choose a Cuddle® 3 for easier construction, but don’t be afraid of using a Luxe Cuddle® to make it extra fun and fluffy.
  • Try pinning parallel for the ¼” seams. If you pin perpendicular, make sure to pin often to avoid the layers shifting away from each other.
  • Use felt or two layers of Cuddle® 3 for the leaves. 
  • Use felt or one layer of Cuddle® 3 sewn into a tube for the stem.
  • Mix and match the fabrics for a fun, textural display.
