Jack-o'-lantern pincushion of felt.
The pattern is slimmer than snowman.
Use 6 pieces.
Sew up 2 front pieces.
Patch a small piece at every hole of eyes and mouth and stitch around.
Make a globe with 6 pieces. Turn inside out and stuff polyester fiberfill in it. Close the opening.
Stitch and pull the center with a thick thread.
Roll a green piece of felt and stitch it on the crown. This is a stem.
If you think holes are difficult, make applique.

Once I visited London.
I had heard that there is not delicious food in England.
I didn't think it was truth. I found Jaffa cakes.
In my country, it is difficult to get Jaffa cakes.
Perhaps I can buy one at an import shop, but it must be high.
And I need to diet.
I made Jaffa and cookies of felt, eat them by eyes.

The other day, I tried to remove a core (stalk?) of a cabbage.
I stuck a kitchen knife into the cabbage. When I pulled it out, I saw the tip of the edge disappeared.
I could not find the fragment after all. Is it in my stomach?
Anyway a tip of knife is not so necessary for cooking.

Made a book jacket of felt.
Felt is easy to sew because it does not fray at the cut end.
It needs the margin of the length a little.
The right side is tapered.
Fold the left side and stitch around the hem.
Sew 2 ribbons. One is a bookmark. Another is a holder of turnup.
