Mikey's pumpkin is bigger as he used Bernat Super Value for his instead of Lily Sugar'n Cream Cotton. The change of yarn changes the sizes of the pumpkin.
To be transparent. I had a few issues with the stuffing. During the crocheting portion, I felt I overstuffed it... After I was done and the stitches settled out a few minutes later, I realized my pumpkin looked deflated. I made a secret hole in the bottom of my pumpkin to add more stuffing to it.
I also manipulated the stem to have a slight bend as most pumpkins never have a straight stem. It's a more artistic license at this point.
