  2. To make pumpkin trace from template below and cut out. Use the running stitch to sew pumpkin onto front. Keep doing the running stitch all the way around the piece, once you have come to last inch and a half, place stuffing inside of piece, making sure to get it to puff out a bit. Complete with running stitch to close. Knot on the back to keep stitching in place. Continue this process for all other pumpkin pieces.
  3. Cut out Stem from template below. Use Running stitch to sew onto front. You do not have to stuff these pieces because they are so small.
  4. Once you have everything you want on your bag pieces our now going to hand sew your pieces of felt together. Take your embroidery thread, and thread onto needle. Make sure to tie knot in the end before you begin. First sew two sides together, using the running stitch. You should now have one long piece for your sides.
  5. Using the blanket stitch you will now sew your pieces together. Take your Back and side piece and begin the stitch, make sure the sides are even so the bag sits upright. Once the side and Back piece is together stitch on front. Make sure to keep all knots from thread inside the bag.
  6. Now that all your pieces of felt have been sewn together your bag should stand on its own. Glue desired Dress It Up Halloween buttons onto bags. Enjoy your Halloween!
