For those of you that don't know, Halloween is my favorite holiday of all. Unfortunately I didn't have time this year to put out our decorations, but I did do some Halloween crafting. Below is a tea towel I made for my mom using a Crabapple Hill Studio pattern. I added the ribbon trim as well to spruce it up a bit.
I also made a "Happy Halloween" banner for my mom. Also a Crabapple Hill Studio pattern. Here's a pic.
It doesn't look too impressive, but this is one of the cutest things I have made in a long time. I hope to make a "Let it Snow" banner for our house, we'll see what time allows.
"P" of "Happy" Up-Close
"A" of "Halloween" Up-Close
The banner letters are a combo of embroidered fabric triangles sewn onto 2 different peices of wool felt. They were a little putsy to put together, but I think it will be easier if I get the lightbox I want for Christmas (hint, hint Mom and Dad). I also made a last minute costume for myself to wear to work. Pics will come later, but I've chickened out a little wearing it. I had several high priority, tense meeting this morning and something told me I wouldn't be taken seriously if I wore my mini-veiled-witch hat at the MGO . . .
UDPATE: Ok - my hat is just too cute not to picture so I snapped one at my desk with my phone. The veil is hard to see, but it's the best part! What do you think, work appropriate???
