DIY Pumpkin Shirt | Easy Halloween Pumpkin Shirt
Pumpkin Shirt Materials
- Orange yarn and knitting needles OR old knit hat, sweater, etc. to cut up
- Fall fabric scraps
- Fusible Web
Easy Pumpkin Shirt Instructions
Pumpkin Shirt Step 1: Knit a small orange swatch. I just used stockinette stitch and worsted weight yarn, but this would be really cute in garter, seed, rib, etc. (skip to step 2 if you don’t knit)
Shirt Step 2: Cut out a pumpkin shape from your knitted swatch or old knit item.
Shirt Step 3: Cut out a piece of fusible web and adhere your pumpkin to the shirt. *This took a bit of patience. Don’t set your iron to hot or your yarn might melt, so to get it to fuse I used a lower heat setting for a longer amount of time
Shirt Step 4: Now that your pumpkin is in place, stitch all the way around the pumpkin with a zig-zag stitch. If you want you could just do a pumpkin. Of course, I decided to add a little extra something:) To finish off the shirt I cut out as stem and letters and then stitched them down with a zig-zag stitch. You could also hand embroider the pumpkins with a blanket stitch.

Yup. I wish I could knit because this is just to darn adorable. Plus I’m a teacher so anything reading related makes me smile. Great job!
That is so cute! Would felt work, or would it just melt? I might just have to make a trip to Goodwill to see if there are any orange sweaters!
You did such a great job on the shirt! Your little girl looks adorable in it.
This shirt and your babe are both so cute! Did you cut the letters with a Cricut? I’ve never cut fabric with mine before, so I was just wondering if it works as well as they say it does!
