Mumbly the Mummy Pincushion

Today I am being featured on Howl-oween Tricks & Treats Craftathon over on Rhinestone Beagle;  If you haven't had a chance to check out this blog please take the time to now.  Just click on their button above. It is run by a couple of fun ladies, Anita and Kelly. They are hosting this great Craftathon for the whole month of October so be sure to check back often.  I am being featured as the first guest presenter this year.  What an honor!

So here is the post, pattern and tutorial that I created just for their Craftathon:

It's that time of year again!!! I want to thank Anita and Kelly for hosting this great Howl-oween Tricks & Treats Craftathon again.  I am so excited to have been invited back to share my craft with you for the second year of this great adventure.  

While deciding what to do this year I thought of my doll,  Mumford and Friends.
Mumford and Mumbly together 
He's an 18 inch doll I designed several years ago.  Do I want to do another doll or do I want to do a pincushion version of Mumford?  I've really been interested in designing pincushions lately so that won out.  He stands 4 1/2" tall and is stuffed with crushed walnut shells.  What's great is that he's so easy and so are his critter friends.  Just click on his picture and it will take you to his PDF file which is a tutorial and pattern.

Surprise!!!  Since I so love to share and Halloween is my favorite Holiday I've decided to share Mumford with everyone too.  Just click on his name above and it will take you to his PDF pattern.  No tutorial on this one but he is made very similar to Mumbly.  The biggest difference is that he is stuffed with fiberfill.

Happy Halloweeeeen!!!!!!

  1. Love your pincushion, looks great!

  2. What an adorable pincushion! I'd love it if you linked this mummy project to my Mummy Roundup post.

  3. Marjory,
    I cannot get the pincushion to print-I'm not sure what the problem is. I love it and want one now!!
    Do you have any suggestions how I can get it?
    Thanks very, very much,

  4. Janet,
    I don't know why it won't print for you. I suggest you send me an email to and I'll send the file back to you.

    You may not know that you have to download it before printing.


  5. These are so cute! Thanks for linking up with me for Friday Favorites. I'm featuring you next week! Come by and grab my featured button if you'd like one!

  6. After clicking on the correct graphic link, the links for mumbly and Pirate Hat are not offering the option to download when the "File" header is selected.
    It does work on some of the other pdf files though.
    Your patterns are just so well done and lovable, thank you for your time and offering your patterns.

  7. I know you will not like my answer. But no one else has reported a problem. The only part I can fix is the link to the pdf, which you tell me works. If you are having trouble with you need to contact them. What browser are you using. works better with Chrome. That's because it is Google also. Email me at and tell me which files you want and I will email them back to you. Marjory

  8. Hello Marjory
    I know what is happening now.
    There is another link on your tutorials page and this one will NOT give the option to download.
    BUT :-) having another look at the HOME page I found the link under the second graphic of Mumford and Friends.
    Now I am so very happy to have finally worked that out and thank you for all your efforts.

  9. Marjory, thank you for sharing such an elaborate and beautiful pattern. I was never one for Halloween crafts and quilts in particular, but this one will be definitely made. I hope to do some individual pillows for the children's ward at a local nursing home. God bless you, for sharing your love of life and you are one talented and sharing lady.
