  1. I’m choosing number 18 – the dryer vent pumpkin – because that is one that I have admired for several years and haven’t made yet. I made the book pumpkin last fall (and also an apple book-page pumpkin) and many of the others from fabric and paper. I love fall and PUMPKINS!!!

  2. I would love to make the one that is #5 with it looks like book pages or magazine pages, but there’s no directions. Could you tell me how this one is constructed? Thank you!
