Free Friday: Pumpkin Clip

I don't have kids of my own, but I'm an aunt.  I have three nieces that are either grown or older teens, an 8-year old nephew, and a 3 year old great nephew (yep, I'm a 32 year old great aunt!).  That means I get to do all the cool stuff with kids and none of the hard stuff!

That's what inspired this week's pattern.  Every year, I make up a special bag of Halloween treats for my nephews and nieces.  Usually I buy store bought treat bags, but this year I had a fun idea.  Why not buy some cheap lunch bags and make a cute clip for it?  This idea can be used for all kinds of holidays!  I totally love the brown paper look, so I really love this project.  Plus, it lets me use up some of my plastic canvas scraps. 

 Pumpkin Clip

Skill Level:



  • 7-count plastic canvas
  • Yarns in colors listed in key
  • Wooden clothespin
  • Hot glue
  • #16 plastic canvas needle


  1. Cut and stitch plastic canvas according to graph.
  2. Overcast stem with brown yarn. Overcast the rest of the pumpkin with orange yarn.
  3. Use hot glue to attach pumpkin to clothespin so that the bottom of the pumpkin is near the opening of the clothespin.

So this concludes my Halloween patterns!  I'll be sharing another pattern from the gingham sewing set next week, this time a pin cushion.  So stay tuned!
