2002 - US Flag


In 2002, I was short on time so instead of making a pattern I searched the web for one that I thought I could do quickly and easily. Warning, the stars are tough and will really wear your hand out. Make sure you scrape the inside of the pumpkin to about 1/4" think behind the stars to make carving them much easier.

I found this American flag pumpkin pattern at http://www.pcjackolantern.com/FREE/FlagPat.HTML and loved it. The site was down today when I checked, but it said come back next season, so hopefully it's up again by the time you are reading this. Check it out, I remember that it was a pretty good site.
