Here's My FREE Felt Jack 'O Lantern Pumpkin Pattern. It can be made into an ornament, pin, hair clip and more!
WARNING PHOTO HEAVY POST.
Here's How To Make This Jack 'O Lantern Pumpkin Felt Pattern.
First I printed out my pattern on Freezer Paper and then cut shapes out and ironed them onto the felt. I'm currently and massively in love with freezer paper right now. It's so handy!
I used freezer paper for the pumpkin shapes too. The best thing is you can peel the paper off and re-use it a few times. Perfect when making multiples of some shape.
Cut out your face shapes, peel off the Freezer Paper and play around with placement. This is just an idea, have fun and combine the pieces anyway you like.
Back stitch the lines on using either a lighter or darker embroidery thread color than your felt so they show up nicely.
Then do the same on the back if you want. You can leave the back plain or embroider someone's name and year on it too. You can see I freehand drew the lines but the pattern has them and they can be traced with parchment paper.
I appliqued stitched the mouth first on most the pumpkins to get the spacing right but the order you do it in is up to you. The face pieces can also be glued on using felt glue if you prefer not to sew them.
When both stem for each side are sewn I whip stitch the stems together.
At this point you can add a ribbon to make this an ornament. Make sure you
insert the ribbon before sewing the stems together.
This pattern can also be made as a pin or a hair clip, look at the free running bunny pattern and the free shamrock pattern to see how both of those are attached to the back..
You can sew around using a whip stitch or a blanket stitch and leave the ornament flat like the ones at the top of the page and you're done. I used the whip stitch for this project.
I added a purple pumpkin in place of one of the orange ones because some people paint them to let parents know the treats are allergy free. I made 4 pumpkins for a reason so keep reading and find out why!
I've decided to make a garland out of my 4 pumpkins so I stuffed them lightly with some poly fill. And sewed the opening closed I'm using the whip stitch here.
3 different oranges and a purple all sewn and ready to assemble.
I took a felt ball and a button and ran a 6 strand piece of black embroidery thread through the purple pumpkin.
Next I added another felt ball and using a doll needle shown below threaded the next pumpkin and the next felt ball and next pumpkin and so on.
Enjoy this pattern and please share what you've made with me, I'd love to see! Questions or comments? Just let me know!
