Cut Fabrics

Cut pieces in the following order. Click on "Download this Project" above for pattern. Designer Avis Shirer used lightweight nonwoven interfacing to prepare pumpkin seed appliqués for machine appliqué. Instructions that follow are for this technique.

 

1.    Lay lightweight interfacing over Pumpkin Seed Pattern. Use a pencil to trace the pattern 120 times. Cut out each interfacing shape at least 1⁄4" beyond drawn line.

2.    Place an interfacing shape on right side of an assorted orange print. Sew on drawn line. Trim seam allowance to 3⁄16" on all edges.

3.    Make a small slit in interfacing, being careful not to cut through fabric. Turn shape right side out through opening to make a pumpkin seed appliqué; press, making sure seam allowances are turned under.

4.    Repeat steps 2 and 3 to prepare 120 pumpkin seed appliqués total.
