How to Finish a pUmpkin


Finishing the Top and Bottom


Thread a yarn needle with tail or a remaining piece of yarn and weave through each stitch around the top, pulling the yarn tightly to close the circle.


Close any holes that may occur and if desired sew an x about 2-4 inches long over closure to increase stability.  


Repeat at the other end in the same manner making sure to leave a space in the center for the cinnamon stick for the stem. 

Ta-da!  That was easy!
