Halloween is just around the corner, so we thought it was the perfect time to get crafty. We want to dress up here at work, but don't really like a lot of the Halloween shirts that are out there. After a little bit of brainstorming, Pinterest-ing, and fabric shopping, here's what we came up with!
We decided to sew a pumpkin onto a sweatshirt. First, we found a black crew neck sweatshirt at Wal Mart. (We ended up cutting the neck so the sweatshirt drapes off the shoulder, but we didn't get a picture of that). And found the fabric we wanted to use on the pumpkin.
Next, we cut out 3 ovals for the pumpkin, a stem, and a leaf.
Then we laid everything out on the sweatshirt just how we wanted it, and pinned it... a lot!!
And finally we sewed everything into place using a zig zag stitch in coordinating threads!
This project was so fun and easy... we definitely recommend making a Halloween sweatshirt of your own!
