5. This is now how it looks. Add again a new section (right sides facing) to one right side of this piece and again sew together. You will continue until all of the remaining sections are used up. For the last sides, sew the last right side to the first right side. Leave an opening for turning. On the top and bottom of the pumpkin, bunch the section ends together and  sew a line across to hold all sections together. Turn your pumpkin now to the right side, stuff and then sew the opening closed.
