Hi all. Halloween is the theme for this week's makes. A little early i know, but that's a crafter's life for you! As always, i look forward to hearing your thoughts :)
I have to say, i'm really pleased with how this bunting turned out, i wouldn't mind a set of my own if i find the time! I especially like the bats as they are one of my favourite animals :)
The applique figures have all been carefully stitched to the flags and the ghosts have 'Boo' hand embroidered alongside them. I used the warm tone polka dot fabric from my Autumn Naturally range for the pumpkins which ties the bunting in nicely with some of my other autumnal makes.
All the flags are stitched around the edge to prevent excess fraying and should last for many Halloweens to come.
Trick Or Treat Sign
My second make is a 'trick or treat' sign, perfect for decorating your porch ready for spooky visitors!
The applique figures and lettering have been carefully stitched to the central hessian panel, with the hanging twine secured behind the hat and pumpkin.
The main body is the warm tone polka dot from my Autumn Naturally collection, the reverse side of the sign is un-dyed organic cotton and there is an internal layer of interfacing to make sure it hangs flat.
In other Halloween related news, we have been harvesting pumpkins from our allotment this week, 11 in all. The time for decorating them always arrives when i'm in the thick of Christmas makes but i'm determined to put aside some time to carve at least a couple this year... anyone else growing pumpkins or planning to decorate them?
