"a-MAIZE-ing il-LUMINA-tion" - Kit includes a complete pattern, all the applique wools (already felted), the background wool fabric (felted), all the appliqué threads (hand-dyed cotton) and special #5 pearl cotton threads for corn kernels, freezer paper and wool batting for optional stuffing of the pumpkin. (Image shows a plaid cotton that formerly was included in the kit for the pillow backing. We have since replaced this fabric with the wool batting.)
Current kit background is a brown/black with a small window pane, very similar to original. Leaf and vine fabrics are hand-dyed greens! Kernels are made from 4, 20-yard skeins of hand dyed threads in two colorways that are alternated to get this realistic look!
SPECIAL ORANGE PUMPKIN - at the request of customers, we are now offering this kit with a piece of double sided orange wool for the pumpkin, replacing the white wool. Please call to speak with Kathy or Jerry to order this special fabric! (719) 282-3518 - in Colorado! Or make note of this in the "notes" section of the ordering page.
Our pattern has been updated with more detailed instructions for making those special kernel knots, and for adding batting beneath the pumpkin to make it dimensional as well!
