Pumpkin Applique Template

Use a pumpkin applique to decorate baby clothes for the fall season!

My son is obsessed with pumpkins. I have no idea why this is, but he loves them. We love fall around here and any excuse to do some autumn themed crafting is a fine by me!

You could draw out a jack-o-lantern face and cut it out in black felt if you like as well. We opted to leave off a face because we wanted more of a generic fall shirt rather than a "Halloween" shirt. This way, he'll get more wear out of it - he can wear it after Halloween and through November.

Here is a pumpkin applique template for you to print out and trace onto your fabric.

Pumpkin Applique Instructions:

Trace, Cut Out, Iron

Trace your design onto fusible web, cut it out and then iron it onto your orange fabric. Peel off the paper backing of your fusible web.

Iron & Sew

Position the parts of your design (I used orange cotton and brown felt for the stem) and iron them onto your shirt. Machine stitch with a zigzag or handstitch with a blanket stitch around the edge of your design. This creates a nice secure attachment and will withstand machine washing.

Enjoy & Happy Autumn!
