Janie and Jack is a lovely Children's clothing store. I always love to go in and browse when I visit Orlando. Of course, like everything else I like, it is very expensive. Sometimes you can find a good sale, but I often want what is in season now. This year they have the cutest Halloween collection. I really loved this little t-shirt($28).
a long-sleeved white t-shirt
black embroidery floss
water-soluble fabric pen
paper and pencil
Step 1: Draw a sketch of the pumpkins, or print mine out here.
Step 2: Cut out your paper patterns and trace them onto the correct colors of felt.
Step 3: Cut out the felt pumpkins.
Step 4: Thread a needle with 3 strands of black embroidery floss. You are going to embroider the "inside" detailing of the pumpkins - the lines and the jack-o-lantern face.
Step 5: Pin the pumpkins to the t-shirt. I focused on centering the jack-o-lantern and then arranged the other two around it.
Step 6: Embroider around the pumpkins and stems/leaves. Don't forget to add the curly vines. It WILL look handmade - but that's okay. The Janie and Jack one was made in a factory somewhere - yours is unique and made with loving hands :)
Step 7: Write the caption under the pumpkins with a fabric pen.
Step 8: Thread your needle with 2 strands of black embroidery floss and follow your letters, embroidering the phrase.
Step 9: Rinse the fabric pen off and Ta-Da!! You're all set!
Put it on your little pumpkin and enjoy the fall weather! Have a great weekend!
