FREE Peekaboo Pumpkin Treat Bag


Now here is a quick, easy and fun fall project for you.  Since orange gourd designs are appropriate through Thanksgiving, you can stitch up a whole pumpkin patch of these to share. Even without an embroidery machine, you could trace a pumpkin and stitch the entire project on your sewing machine.

A detailed photo tutorial and the free design in 4×4 a d 5×7 are available at Brother’s blog, Stitching Sewcial. You can be very creative with this little pumpkin, using various colors of felt, burlap or even a sturdy fabric.

I especially liked using my Brother P-touch Embellish ribbon and tape printer  to print BOO! for the black pumpkin tie.

There are so many great projects posted at Stitching Sewcial, like Angela Wolf’s lovely burlap jar covers embellished with Scan ‘n Cut letters FALL.



Having recently purchased a Scan ‘n Cut I was especially interested in this project.  Check out Angela’s post and her tutorial here.  I just love the long fringe at the top and bottom of the jars.

And here is another fall project from Joanne Banko, Fall Wreath–a great post, great project, great tutorial with a great free sunflower swag design.


Happy Fall to you all!  Enjoy stitching for this colorful season.

  1. from Martha Pullen forum: Thank you for the cute design and instructions!

  2. from MP forum: Janice – do you think I could use the vinyl from a zippered bedding bag??? not sure if I have vinyl by the yard… I remember the last time I used the vinyl for a project the vinyl kept sticking… any tips?? I do have a Teflon foot but for embroidery I need the embroidery foot on my machine…
    Normally I save the zippered plastic cases that duvets and my electric blankets came in to reuse for storage…

  3. I think your bag vinyl should work just fine. The vinyl I had on hand is fairly thick– can’t imagine why I bought 2 yds!! But as a precaution, I suggest you slow down your speed and raise your presser foot height. Good luck with this fun project let me know how it turns out.

  4. from MP forum: Just adorable project and thank you, Janice for the links. One question. Is the ribbon that is used in the p touch labeler ordinary ribbon or is it bought from brother. I have an older p touch here but think this is so cute to print on the ribbon. I might want to upgrade the p touch for this feature. That is such a nice touch for the pumpkins.

  5. I’m glad you like the project and noticed the ribbon. It’s such a very special addition to any project. This little device, the P-touch Ribbon and Tape Printer requires special ribbon which comes as a cartridge with about 4.3 yds of 1/2″ ribbon. There are many colors of ribbon and just about as many colors of ink. We supply our church with “Welcome to River City Church” ribbons to tie up the gift bags for visitors. You can purchase an assortment box from Amazon for much less than the cost of individual cartridges and sometimes can get them with a 50% off coupon from Michaels. Check out the link. There are14 fonts, 90+ borders, 400+ symbols, and 25 patterns. It’s a really great little device.
