Pumpkin Kitchen Towel

Here is a cute little Pumpkin Towel you can make and an easy enough project for beginner sewers to do too. If you know me by now, you know I am always looking for a project that practices the skills you’re trying to teach young girls at home as well as produce something useful too. This fits the ticket!

We had fun making these and made several different variations of them.

 

First, I got some green kitchen towels from the dollar store (for a dollar). Then, I drew out a really easy pumpkin pattern and cut out each piece from paper to use as our pattern.

Using some scraps of fall colored fabrics, my daughters cut out the pumpkin pieces.

 

 

 

 

 

Then, with an iron, I attached the pumpkin pieces to the towel using iron-on type stitch witchery. Next, the girls just stitched around each pumpkin piece using a small zigzag stitch on the sewing machine, just like you would do for an appliqué stitching.

 

To embellish them, you can sew on buttons or cut out a leaf from a coordinating fabric to sew on. they also picked out some scrap ribbon and rickrack trims I had on hand, and sewed those along the bottom edge of the towel……………and they were done!

 

I especially like projects we can finish in just a couple sittings…… And I ended up with some cute perky pumpkin towels to use in the kitchen. These would be fun to give to a grandmom or someone who has a fall birthday and would even make a sweet hostess gift to give at Thanksgiving!

Delightfully Yours, Annette
