Pumpkin Jack Welcomes You!
Pumpkin Jack is all about carving pumpkins. I have patterns, instructions, anecdotes, carving galleries and even Halloween stories. Come in and stay a while. Please return often.
The majority of the patterns on this site are quiet complex and require hours of time to complete. If you find them to be intimidating or, perhaps, you would like a little practice first before tackling them, you might wish to attempt some more traditional patterns here, some Halloween images here or my extensive collection of smiley face patterns here.
Number of patterns so far: 1435
Pattern of the Month - October
Yep, it's here. This is my favourite month of the year. It may not, generally speaking, be terribly warm, although it can be, but it is exciting. You see this is the month for Halloween. Here in Canada, it is also the month for Thanksgiving, typically celebrated on the 2nd Monday of the month. For me personally, I was married in October and this year is our 25th anniversary. I haven't even mentioned fall festivals, television show premieres and oh so many televised sporting events. It's a mighty powerful month.
That's why I saved the best and oldest superhero for last: Superman (Christopher Reeve)! Many of you will have other favourites, but Supes is the oldest, most immitated and is frequently the metre stick against which other character's power is measured. And so, our final pattern of the month for our Hallowe'en 2019 theme of Superheroes: DC vs Marvel is the one and only Superman!
Coming up for 2020: Vampires and Werewolves!
