One of my sweet little peep students exclaimed that everything in my house was sewn for Halloween and another student told me she had to close her eyes or she’d get too many ideas before the others were done when she walked through.
It’s a little over the top, but Halloween’s my favorite holiday.
I actually refrained from making anything new this year and honestly I would have if I’d found the time.
I also cut the purse strings and didn’t even look at the newest Halloween novelty fabric of the year. That’s a first for me. I know there’s some new Ghastlies out there.
There’s certainly no lack of pillows with invisible zippers in this house at any season.
I’ve done a lot of small projects for Halloween and some of the paper piecing patterns out there are favorites.
I’ve got Skully here by Twiddletails printed out big for another floor pillow someday, but until then I’ve got a little doorknob caddy for handing out candy to my trick or treaters. It’s one of my fav projects, especially if it’s full of 3 musketeers;).
Quilt-As-You-Go is a perfect technique for making unique bags with prints from stash. It’s also good practice in picking fabrics that compliment each other in a log cabin block style. I’m not a very nostalgic person when it comes to keepsakes, but Roan’s Halloween bag has been packed away with a few other heart-felt gifts.
Supplement it all with scouted out decor. My pumpkin heads from Safeway always make me happy and I’m pretty sure I funded Target alone last year with their lite pumpkins.
Outside isn’t so great due to our lack of plugs;(
And the memories of the kids in costumes are what makes it so fun right? Fourteen year old photo next.
Happy Halloween peeps!
