    Felt pumpkin body, stem and vine in washing machine using low water/economy setting on hot water wash with a couple pairs of jeans or other heavy garment to provide agitation. Add a small amount of detergent or dishsoap to the pieces. Check every 10 - 15 minutes. Once stitch definition is no longer visible, remove pieces from machine and rinse with cold water.

    Stuff pumpkin with plastic bags. Wrap yarn very tightly around pumpkin at seam lines, and knot to secure. Repeat for each seam line. This will cause grooves to form along body of pumpkin during felting. Allow to dry completely.

    Remove plastic bags and scrap yarn tied around seams. Stuff pumpkin.
