You all know I love Halloween. And what better way to show my love than to force my family to wear homemade matching Jack-o'-lantern shirts out in public.
This simple little Halloween craft started with me finding orange shirts for each of us at Goodwill. Then I used black felt to cut out the pieces for the faces, and hand stitched them on using a blanket stitch. I could have also easily machine sewed the pieces on, but I sometimes find that being able to make a craft project mobile means that I find more time to do it. A large chunk of this project actually happened as I was riding in a van to Chicago for a fabric field trip with my sewing group.
I thought at first about making all our pumpkin faces the same, to have TRULY matching shirts, but decided that I liked the idea of bringing a little personality to each individual shirt. I've gotten so much use out of this sweatshirt already! It's a great way to add a little holiday spirit without going full costume.
