Grab some felt and your Cricut and you can make appliques to hand sew on kitchen or bath hand towels. These pumpkin SVGs are perfect for Halloween crafts and decor for your own home.

Instructions

  1. Download the cut files below. Upload to Cricut Design Space.
  2. Layout the pumpkin designs with cute Halloween faces however you'd like. I made my cut shapes about 2.5 inches wide.
  3. Follow on-screen instructions to cut the felt and vinyl.
  4. Follow vinyl packaging to iron Halloween faces to felt pumpkins.
  5. Stitch pumpkins to towel as shown.

I used a gray thread because I couldn't find my black thread and I wanted the stitches to show. I think, now that I've sewing the pumpkins on, I prefer the gray, it helps the black accents show off as the focus of the design.

Note: in the photo instructions, it shows the pumpkin sewn to the towel before the face is ironed on. You can apply the vinyl either before you stitch or after. I think before would make it easier to complete, but that's only because I had to iron after stitching everything together. Either way, the project should work out great!

  • Optionally, I added a little bit of green twine around the stem of the pumpkin on my Halloween tea towel. You could also stitch a green vine if you'd like.

Bonus! You could use this same tea towel project to create pumpkin tea towels for fall or Thanksgiving. Just leave off the face and use a coordinating base towel.

Have fun with this cute Halloween Cricut project!

You can get a whole different look just by changing the face and the color of your base towel. Try a purple or black towel with more of a grumpy face. Or maybe a green towel with a super smiley face. You can make a coordinating towel pair for your kitchen and a full set of guest towels for your bath.  There are a ton of fun ways to use these cut files… I hope you have fun.

Happy Halloween creating!
