The weather is near perfect these days, but I can’t help but daydream about how it’s about to get cold and crappy real soon. For a few weeks before that, however, there will be a few weeks of leaf-peeping, crisp apple munching, and general autumnal loveliness.

In the spirit of all that fall goodness comes a new creation, combining my love for jack-o-lanterns, leaves, birch trees, and mushrooms…the pumpkin mushroom plushies!

Pumpkin Mushroom Plushies

These orange-and-white mushrooms sport a cotton cap and felt stem. Each sits in a pile of hand-cut felt leaves upon a birch wood base.

Each face is hand-painted to look like a jack-o-lantern.

They are just over 3″ tall, and follow my own unique pattern.
