Pumpkin Paddle

Today’s project has 2 options to it.  Experiment with the techniques and come up with your own combination.  This makes a great double-sided project.

Here is your pattern PDF:

Pumpkin Paddle pdf: Includes: photo, supply list, instructions, line work

The lessons are divided into smaller segments so you can easily find topics.  I recommend that you watch the lessons in numerical order so you can see the project from start to finish. Of course, you can always go back and watch them over as many times as you need to in order to grasp the skill being demonstrated. The time it will take to watch each video varies from lesson to lesson, and is shown in parenthesis () after each video link.

It is recommended that you let the video load completely in the browser window before you attempt to play it.  Be patient, this may take a few minutes.  It will depend on the speed of your computer and the speed of your internet connection.

Hope you enjoyed the double decker project.  Think of how you could use these ideas for other seasons.  Silhouettes work well for all seasons.  Winter florals and foliage look great with crackle.  Experiment – you will find many solutions for including this idea and techniques.
