Felt Pumpkin Applique

Hi everyone, hope you are having a wonderful Friday. In case you missed my guest post here it is...

Bev said and I agree that this would make a cute banner and Lynn said she would like them as white coasters.

I made them into a headband for my beautiful girl!

Like I said before you could use the pumpkins for so many other things then just a headband.

How about adding it to a shirt. Put it on some scrapbook paper and frame it for cute pumpkin art. Or whatever your heart desires.

Here is what you will need to make the Pumpkin Applique
  • Felt (orange, green and brown or whatever colors you would like).
  • yarn or embroidery thread
  • Needle (yarn needle for yarn)
  • Elastic Headband (if your going to make a headband).
  • glue gun (also for headband)

To get started print and cut out your pattern pieces in the size or sizes you would like. Trace them on your felt and cut out.

I like to cut out two pumpkin shapes for thickness. You will also need two leaves and one stem. Thread your needle with your yarn or thread and tie a knot on the end.

Pull needle through one of the pumpkin shapes, then place the second shape on top sandwiched between the knot and the first pumpkin.

Do a running stitch around the entire pumpkin. I like to push my needle through to the back and then back up the front and pull the yarn/thread through.

Place the needle back through the last stitch made..... 

and pull back up. Repeat this process around.

Now draw your pumpkin creases like the above picture with a disappearing marker and stitch these with a running stitch as well.

Now add a leaf and stitch across the middle like shown and repeat with another leaf. Stitch the stem in place.

Now you have a cute little pumpkin applique!

If you want to add them to a headband then cut a rectangular shape of felt about the size of the pumpkins your going to use.

Place the headband in the center and run hot glue down the sides.....

Place your pumpkins on top and trim the excess felt off.

Add it to a cute little monster and enjoy!

You could also stitch on jack-o-lantern face for more of a Halloween look.

Thanks Karen for having me!

Boo Yarn Wreath

In case you missed this when I did a guest post at Rhinestone Beagle here it is.
I have a cute Boo Banner Wreath to share with you all.

I love how it turned out, I hope you do to.

Here is how I made it...

You will need this Banner I made up for it.

I had half of a foam board left from another project (purchased at Dollar Tree). I set a large plate on top of the foam and traced around it then placed a small plate in the middle and traced around it crating a wreath shape. I cut out the wreath using an x-acto knife. Then I glued it on top of another piece of foam and cut it out as well. I wanted the double thickness, but it wouldn't be totally necessary.

Then I glued the end of my black yarn ball to one side and wrapped and wrapped the yarn all around the wreath covering all of it.

Then I cut out my Banner and cut it out and glued it to a piece of yarn long enough for it and to wrap around and glue to the back of the wreath.

I thought it was pretty cute even left like this.

But I added some pom pom's. I just made them with the wrapping around your hand method. Then just glued them to the wreath.

And there you have it a Fun Simple and Inexpensive wreath for Halloween. I hope you liked it!

Giveaway and Review with Jenny and Teddy - Closed

Hi everyone! First off I just want to let you know I will be participating in a few Halloween/Fall Parties check them out in my side bar.

Now for the review and giveaway.
I had the opportunity to test a pattern for Jenny and Teddy. The pattern I tested was this adorable bear hat.

So Cute isn't it? This pattern was easy to understand and there were a lot of photos to help with assembly. I think I had to go up a hook size to obtain gauge, but that is something that everyone should check before starting any crochet pattern.

I did a review for Jenny and Teddy a while back also. Her patterns are always easy to understand and have great detailed pictures.

She has a sale going on right now for the Crochet Bear Hat Pattern through Amazon you can get it for only $.99 . That is such a great deal!

Jenny and Teddy have graciously offered to give one of my lucky readers a finished Mr. Frog Doll (not the pattern).  Such a cute doll and really great giveaway! Good Luck!

Make sure you check out her blog Jenny And Teddy Creations where she shares free patterns, and her Etsy shop.

To enter the giveaway........
  1. Leave a comment on this post.
  2. Visit the Jenny and Teddy Etsy shop and comment and tell me which two patterns are your favorite.
  3. Check out and follow the Jenny and Teddy blog, come back and leave a comment letting me know you have.
This giveaway will end Friday 10/14/11 at 12:00 p.m. AZ time.
