Free Pumpkin Applique

I originally shared this free pumpkin applique post last Fall at GYCT Designs and now I’m bringing it back here to share with you! Applique is my favorite, it’s an easy way to use up scraps and personalize patterns. In this case, it also helps reinforces pant knees! My son has been obsessed with pumpkins for a long time, so he was very excited to have pumpkins on his pants. If you’ve never used Wonder Under, I have a quick tutorial on that too – it makes things so easy.
