Lutradur Pumpkins for Halloween
To make each pumpkin we coloured a piece of Lutradur 70gms with orange transfer paint and then drew a circle using a compass.
Keeping the compass at the same radius (and remembering our school geometry!) we positioned the point of the compass on the circumference and drew an arc; then repositioned the compass on the point where the arc met the edge of the circle to draw another arc and so on, until we had drawn several arcs and completed a ‘flower’ shape.
After cutting out the shape, we machine stitched strips of Lutradur to the centre of each segment, to give added support and interest, before joining all the outer tips together to form the pumpkins.
The stems and tops were made from Evolon which we coloured using green transfer paint. A narrow strip of Evolon was tightly rolled to form each stalk and made long enough to pass all the way through the pumpkin and protrude slightly out of the base – this helped to pull all the sections together and create a nice bulbous shape.
