sleeves from old long sleeved shirts or legs from old pants
Cut a section of the shirt sleeve or the leg from pants so that it is straight on both ends. One end will be wider than the other and that is just fine; use the wider end as the bottom of your pumpkin). Cut 5-6 lengths of twine, a little longer than the sleeve section. I cut 5 for the small pumpkins and 6 for the big one.
Turn the sleeve inside out. Tie the twine strands together then insert through the sleeve so that the tied ends are sticking out from the wider end.
Gather up the sleeve and secure with twine.
Turn sleeve right side out. Fill with polyfill/cotton/cotton balls etc
Gather up the sleeve at the open end and secure with a rubber band,
Slide each of the twine strands through the rubber band.
Begin pulling each lose end of the twine strands until you reach the desired puffiness in your pumpkin section. Tie the twine to the rubber band. Repeat for all strands.
Wrap the lose strands around the excess fabric to create the stem. Use some more twine until the whole stem is nicely covered in twine. Adjust your pumpkin sections and help it take shape.
