This project has been trending on a social media
embroidery group I follow and it’s just too cute not to share. Felt cutouts in
the shapes of pumpkins and a witch on a broom make a unique palette for
The blanks can be found at dollar stores and can be used as
placemats, table accents, or hung on a door.
Because they can’t be hooped, they should be easy to stitch
by using adhesive
tear-away stabilizer. You may want to use mictotex sharp needles and may
need to loosen top tension to accommodate the dense felt.
The pumpkin is not totally symmetrical so is a bit
challenging to center in the hoop. When all else fails, mark the center with
your hoop template and advance your machine to the center point to start stitching the design.
Here is a selection of designs that would be adorable for
this project, and they are on sale!
Face would be adorable stitched on the pumpkin felt.
Welcome ghosts and goblins with these
or Treat 1 and Trick
or Treat 2.
the Shoe Fits and
Moon are perfect embroidery choices for the witch.
Web and Fancy
Skull would both work well if embroidered
with glow-in-the-dark thread. They would appear white by day and glow for a
special surprise when the lights go out!
Halloween Crescent Moon and Halloween
Cat would both be adorable stitched on the pumpkin.
Halloween Bat is better suited to the pumpkin
while the Happy
Halloween wording would work on both.
Cute ideas – can’t wait for Christmas!
