Felt Jack-O-Lantern | My Girlish Whims

Felt Jack-O-Lantern

Monday, October 3, 2011 |
Well, I hope you are all proud of me. 

I introduce you to my very first seasonal/holiday/festive craft. 

Yeah yeah I know. I've had this blog for like...10 months now and I'm just doing my first seasonal craft???  Yes. You are correct. Feel free to send some blogging shame my way. shame. shame. shame.

Ok, well now that that is done..... I introduce you to my cute little felt jack-o-lantern :)

Here's how to make him!

First I cut out a template of a basic pumpkin shape

And then traced it onto some orange felt.

Cut out two pumpkin shapes.

And then cut out black pieces of felt for the eyes, nose, and mouth.

I stitched the pieces on using embroidery floss

And also decided to add in some stitched lines to make it look more realistic. I also cut out and stitched on a piece of brown felt for the stem.

Next I put the second felt pumpkin shape behind the face and then used a blanket stitch to sew all the way around, and stuffed the insides.

After he was all sewed and stuffed, this is what he looks like!

Not very scary, but that's the way I like my Halloween decor :)

Now little Jack-O-Lantern has found a home on my dorm room window with the pumpkins my roommate and I carved this weekend!

So very festive. I'm very proud of myself :)

I'll be sharing this with all the link parties in my header including Today's Creative BlogSerenity Now, Christina's Adventures, and:
Monster Mash Bash

A Crafty Soiree
