Oof. This DIY was a doozy. I started by embroidering a mini-pumpkin using traditional embroidery thread and needle. But the flesh of the pumpkin just broke and fell apart as I cross-stitched – the holes were too tiny and fragile. So much for Pumpkin #1.
Then I did a larger pattern using a tapestry needle and yarn. Except I messed up the placement of the holes on Pumpkin #2, so there are random holes with no purpose around the embroidered spider.
Finally, Pumpkin #3 and #4 yielded better results.
And man, now my fingers are sore.
