Fold the piece in half and sew with the yarn tail and needle through top loops of both short sides and make it like a tube (Image 1). Tie a knot at the end, do not cut the yarn and start weaving in and out through the stitches around the long side. Pull the yarn tightly and close the bottom with a few more stitches. (Image 2)
Add fiberfill (Image 3). With the yarn tail and needle, weave in and out through the stitches around the long side (Image 4). Pull the yarn and close the top by pulling the yarn tail tightly.
Again, using your yarn tail and the needle, insert the needle through the center of the pumpkin to the other side and pull the yarn tightly. (Image 6)
Insert the yarn tail again through the center to the other side. Pull the yarn tightly to get the shape of a pumpkin as you want. (Image 7 & 8)
Lastly, Attach the stick with glue. Tie ribbon, twin or any decorative thing around the stick if you want. I tied my old hair band around the stick.
