Cut Fabrics

Cut pieces in the following order. Click on "Download this Project" for the patterns.

Pumpkin Pattern A is in three sections. To make a full-size pattern, trace sections on one large piece of paper, overlapping shaded areas.

To make pattern templates, click on "Download this Project." Be sure to transfer stitching lines marked on patterns A and B to the templates, then to the fabric pieces.

Wool felt (available in crafts stores) doesn’t fray, so there is no need to turn under the edges of the appliqué shapes. Cut edges cleanly, keeping them as smooth as possible.

To use fusible web for appliquéing, complete the following steps.

1. Lay fusible web, paper side up, over patterns. Use a pencil to trace each pattern the number of times indicated in cutting instructions, leaving at least 1⁄2" between tracings. Cut out each fusible-web shape roughly 1⁄4" outside traced lines.

2. Following manufacturer’s instructions, press fusible-web shapes onto designated fabrics; let cool. Cut out fabric shapes on drawn lines and peel off paper backings.
