Pumpkin Shirt Materials

  • Orange yarn and knitting needles OR old knit hat, sweater, etc. to cut up
  • Shirt
  • 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.

Have fun at the patch!

  1. 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!
