I know I have been away for a LONG time. Over two months! I lost all motivation to blog. Both reading and posting. Recently I had begun to think about coming back, slowly. Well, I got this post from the EHAG group (one of the few that still come to my inbox) and I was compelled to participate. They are giving away some Halloween goodies in which I shared my favorite Halloween decoration. The only project I've completed this fall became the obvious choice, so I figured it was necessary to show them!
Here's the pattern I started with. Black Cats...Orange Pumpkins WSD #126 by Wooden Spool Designs
In the shop where I bought the pattern their samples were made up in white. They caught my eye, obviously! Love the ghosty white ones!
Of course, the orange are nice too!
I had a blast making these. They were so easy because you construct the muslin base (I used a wool blend) then cut a slit where the face will go and stuff it! Then, it's a simple matter of whip-stitching the face on!
I would like to finish these off with some wire tendrils and maybe some ripped green/brown strip around the spool. Although they are pretty cute as-is!
So now that I'm back...maybe I'll get to posting a few more things before the holiday. Just maybe!
In the meantime, done forget to check out the EHAG blog!
