Pumpkin t-shirt made using the Teresa Collins Chic and Scary cartridge

Hello, friends!

Today I have another fabric project that I made for one of my sweet nieces. The only problem is that if I make something for one, I will be making something for all of them. Which means I will be cutting pumpkins out in fabric this weekend!

The pumpkin is from the FABULOUS Teresa Collins Chic and Scary cartridge. This is this year's Halloween must have!

I made this the usual way. (Click here for my ==> FABULOUS Fabric Tutorial

I cut the pumpkin out at 7".
This is before the stitching...
This is after!

Great job, so simple, but so darn cute. I haven't tried cutting fabric yet, BUT I will be going to town today:)
I was terrified to cut, & work with vinyl. After watching you, & Joy, I pulled out vinyl(bought 3 years ago)& it was so easy & fun to cut.

I really must try fabric in my Cricut. When making appliques, I usually like to stitch too. It's a neat accent and keeps applique attached.

Betsy said...

Cute T-shirt. I have not gotten the nerve to try using vinyl or fabric yet. one of these days I will give it a try. But keep those tutorials coming - that might be the push I need.
