It's pumpkin time!
This adorable towel has an applique pumpkin on both sides. It's a lot easier to
make than you think and you can use it right up to Thanksgiving!
Applique by Grand Slam Designs is perfect for this project. The applique
technique is the same as traditional methods. The only difference is that when you tack down fabric on
one side, you do it on the other side too. Likewise, when you trim fabric on
the front side, you trim it on the back as well.
Baste the towel onto hooped
water-soluble fabric-type stabilizer. Run the first color stop, the placement
stitches for the stem.
Take the hoop off of your machine and add
fabric over the stem on the front and back of the hoop.
Put the hoop back on the machine and
run the next color stop, the tack-down for the stem.
