We're creeping ever closer to All Hallows Eve, only 2 more days, yay! Are you ready for some more Halloween foolery? What I have for you today is my favorite thing I've made this spooky season, a little stitchy, a little quilty and a whole lot of color.
A Little Batty Halloween!
I stitched this pattern in no time at all, less than a day actually. Once I started, I couldn't stop and didn't want to. This was a truly fun stitch up, it reminded me why I love embroidery so much.
I knew exactly what I wanted to make with this stitchery, a quilted wall hanging to add to my Halloween decorations.
I found this fun Candy Corn printed cotton at JoAnn's after I'd stitched my piece, and the colors and style worked perfectly! I love the way they're both kind of silly and cute, but not too cute, ya know?
The piecing around the embroidery was simple and fast, and I didn't even freak out about the binding this time, bonus! Plus, I'm getting a lot better at corners, all four of these look pretty darned good (if I do say so myself).
To hang this piece, I just made two little tubes to slide a piece of dowel through, then tied ribbon around the end of each side of the dowel. I painted the dowel black to so it would coordinate better with the fabric.
Viola, Halloween art!
I love it!
I still have a couple Halloween tricks up my sleeves to reveal in the next couple of days so stay tuned! I hope you guys have enjoyed these little Halloween posts, I sure have enjoyed sharing them.
See you tomorrow!
p.s. After I hit publish guess what I'm going to do? I'm headed to the kitchen to whip up some Harry Potter themed goodies to take to Jill's Harry Potter Ball tonight, wahoo!! I'm making Pumpkin Pasties and Butterbeer Cupcakes, ooooh! I hope they come out ok! If they do, I'll make sure to snap a couple of shots and share the recipes. Toodle-doo!
