I had been wanting to create wool felt penny rug type pictures for my "It's Raining Baby Showers" baby shower decorations line and thought that little baby heads coming out of pumpkins or wearing pumpkin tops as hats would be cute. They'd all be kind of hiding in the pumpkin patch waiting to be found. So, "Babies In The Pumpkin Patch" was born.
"Babies In The Pumpkin Patch" is a pattern to create an 8 1/2" by 11" wool felt penny rug picture enclosed in an 11" by 14" picture frame. For the finished picture I used an orange foam sheet as the background instead of a mat. The wool felt picture is made from two dark brown pieces of wool felt (8 1/2" by 11") which are blanket stitched around all the edges. The orange wool felt pumpkins and leaves are outline embroidered. The baby heads have embroidered and blushed cheek faces, yarn for hair, and ribbon bows for decorations.
The pattern can be made as just a penny rug wool felt blanket stitched picture or enclosed within a picture frame.
