No Wrong Side This Time ...

Hello my dear friends,

sometimes there is no "wrong side". Well, at least when it comes to fabric.

 On the day I found the lovely wool fabric I turned into a pumpkin, I also found another very nice piece of fabric. It was a thicker fabric, possibly upholstery and so lovely with it's rich dark gold color, beautiful pink shaded roses and green leaves. It was perfect to also be turned into a Autumn fruit. Whist working on on this pumpkin, I noticed how pretty the "wrong" side of the fabric was. It was the opposite of the "good" side. It was quite dark, almost black and the roses and leaves were still there, not defined at all but you still see all of the colors, the shades of pink, the green and a shine of the dark gold. I just knew that I had to make another pumpkin with it showing that side of the fabric and that is exactly what I did. Now my "right" and "not~wrong" pumpkins are finished and I am happy to share them with all of you today.

I hope you enjoy them!

The "Right" Pumpkin ...

The "Not~Wrong" Pumpkin ...

I really like how my newest creations have turned out. 

Of course this pumpkin season could be not without one made from two of my most favorite things and that is going to be my next project. I am thinking of my favorite drop cloth and a harmonizing colored seam binding, two things I really love working with. The next pumpkin creation I will be sharing with all of you is one of the "cooler" type. I have been working on a past design and also on a new one too. So do stop by soon again, here at Todolwen  and see what I have been up too.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. I've never been able to look at fabric without checking out the 'wrong' side to see if it's usable too. I have often used the wrong side in my crazy quilts and now I'm finding that they're equally as perfect for use in my barns.

  2. Hello Karen,
    These pumpkins are both so lovely! I too am enjoying 'both sides' of this wonderful rich fabric~ The stems are such a beautiful idea and highlight!
    And seam binding is gorgeous~ Thanks for sharing. Hugs, karen o
