This DIY mini felt pumpkin tote is just what your little tot needs to store all of their coveted candy on Halloween! I am a huge fan of Fall. I love when the seasons change, especially when we go from Summer to Fall. This transition brings cooler temperatures and beautiful foliage. Fall also brings Halloween, which is one of my favorite holidays! I love crafting up projects for this spooky holiday.
With my twins walking and talking, this is their first Halloween where they can go trick-or-treating on their own and I no longer need to carry them (tear). I thought it would be fun to make them a mini felt pumpkin tote to use on the big night of candy collecting. This tote was super easy to put together, especially since I used adhesive backed felt for the pumpkin face; all you do is peel and stick! To give it a bit more detail, I added a blanket stitch to the outside of the tote. The stitch really makes it pop!
- Felt (orange, black-with adhesive, and brown)
- Metallic Silver Fabric Paint Pen
- Black Embroidery Floss
- Embroidery Needle
Here’s how to create your own DIY Mini Felt Pumpkin Tote:
Cut out your pumpkin shape from your felt. You are also going to cut out a strip of felt that will be sewn around the outside of the mini felt pumpkin tote. Cut the strip so it is 2 inches wide and will wrap around your pumpkin, leaving a 3 inch opening at the top.
2. Place the strip of fabric you cut towards the top of your mini felt pumpkin tote, cut a piece of embroidery floss, and begin stitching a blanket stitch around your pumpkin.
