Follow manufacturer’s instructions to fuse adhesive to back of fabrics; cut out. Remove paper backing. Center and fuse stems, pumpkins, and noses to dishtowel as shown. (Note: Pumpkins overlap stems.)

STEP 2

  • Transfer eyes and mouths; use two strands floss to stem stitch. Use three strands to blanket stitch around edges of pumpkins, stems, and noses. Sew buttons to cheeks.

STEP 3

  • Use three strands of floss to blanket stitch rickrack along bottom edge of dishtowel; whipstitch ends to back.

Tips

  • 1. Make apron or trick-or-treat bag in same way as dishtowels.
  • 2. Enlarge patterns to create whimsical pillows.
