    1. Thanks! I went to my church’s pumpkin patch and asked if I could pick up any loose stems off the ground. I’ve seen them for sale on ebay or you could use squash stems. 🙂 Good luck!

  4. I just made some pumpkins. I’m having trouble closing the hole that is left after pulling the thread. I stitched the hole closed. Is there something I am missing?
