5. Draw a quilting pattern on the quilt top (the one with Jack’s face). I use an oval shape jar lid to make it easier to copy the curved pumpkin pattern.

6. Basting all three layers: quilt top, batting, and backing. Then start quilting on eyes, nose, mouth, pumpkin lines, and make quilting also for pumpkin tendrils. If you can’t draw the tendrils by yourself, I also provide the quilt pattern in pdf file.

7. Sew the leaf and the stem as the pictures. Attach the leaf at the quilt top.

8. Prepare a 72 cm long bias tape for bindings. Cut four ribbons to tie the cozy mug to the mug. Sew the binding and ribbons as the picture. Then sew the stem at the back of cozy mug as you can see in the picture.
