Double over your HeatnBond Fusible Fleece.  Cut two fleece pumpkin pieces, 1/4″ smaller than the fabric one. Fuse one to the back of the pumpkin.  Quilt with Aurifil 12 wt. thread.  Use a longer stitch when using this weight. Trace the heart on the HeatnBond lite.  Iron to the wrong side of the red fabric.  Cut out the shape.  Iron heart to the desired location of the pumpkin.

    Love this, have a bunch of short 1.5″ orange strips left over from easter and last fall. Think I will sew them together in a jelly roll jam fashion. Cutting scrappy strips for the pumpkin shape and adding the sweet heart will make an adorable heat/pot holder. I will be adding isu-lbright to the pot holder to make it heat resistant. My daughter in law and BFF’s will love getting one of these.
