Halloween Pumpkin Faces

I should've been working on other things - lots of others things.  But instead I got side-tracked with Halloween pumpkins!  If you have been with me from the start then you will remember one of my early mug rug patterns - the autumnal Pumpkin Patch mug rug. 

Well, ever since I made this colourful little quiltie I have had an inkling to turn it into a Halloween mug rug. And for some reason - I know not why - today was the perfect time.    
So how does a harmless little mug rug turn into a chilling specimen?  It’s easy – you can either cast a spell or pop over to my Craftsy shop and download the FREE Halloween Pumpkin Face applique sheet.  Then all you’ll need is a 4” square of fusible webbing and a 4” square of black linen/cotton.  Oh and the magic fingers of a sewist – of course.

And if you haven’t already got my Pumpkin Patch mug rug – then don’t worry – you’ll find it in my shop for the bargain price of $1.99.  One pattern – two great looks.  How chilling is that?


  1. I just have to smile looking at those. Great faces :-)

  2. ooooh! Scary!! I think I'll opt for the autumn version : ) Looking good Amanda!

  3. Such a clever way to turn our pumpkins into Jack-O-Lanterns!
    Thank you for a lovely template pattern!!

    I love those fabrics for Halloween!


  4. I love both versions! The night background is fun for the lanterns. Wouldn't that be a fun gift for a dentist?

  5. Cute mug rug patterns. Just HAD to bookmark.

    1. Thank you. I'm glad this motley duo didn't scare you off!
