Download, print and cut out the free Jack O’ Lantern felt pumpkin pattern.
Trace the pattern on the different felt colors that you choose. We used the following colors:
- Pumpkin bases (2): Orange
- Stem (2): Green
- Cheeks (2): Pink
- Jack O’ Lantern Face: Black
Cut out the pattern pieces.
Place a stem cutout on the top middle part of a pumpkin base cutout.
Thread a needle with green matching thread. Stitch the base of the stem to the pumpkin base.
Do not cut off the thread yet.
Place the other stem on the back side of the stitched stem. Using the same thread, sew around the sides and top of the stem to secure them together.
Do not sew the base of the second stem piece you just added yet.
Place the other pumpkin base piece on the back side of the stitched base. Make sure to bring the back side of the stem to the front of the back base piece.
Now stitch the back stem with the back pumpkin base to join them.
Attach the Jack o’Lantern face cutouts to the pumpkin base. Thread a needle with black thread to sew on the face patterns using simple stitches.
Do not sew through both of the pumpkin bases. Just sew to the top piece.
Add a pink cheek cutout to either side of the mouth. Using pink thread, stitch the cheeks onto the base. (You could also glue the face cutouts to be easier, too.)
Thread a needle with orange thread to match your pumpkin base felt.
Hand sew around the side of both pumpkin pieces, joining them together. I used a blanket stitch, but you can use whatever stitching technique you would like.
Keep a small opening for stuffing.
Do not cut off the excess thread yet.
Stuff the felt pumpkin with fiber fill, cotton, or scrap pieces of felt.
Keep your needle and thread attached while stuffing.
Stitch the opening closed.
Tie a few knots in the back of the pumpkin and cut off the extra thread.
