Handmade Halloween Costumes

Happy Halloween

Today’s the day… Halloween! Which means sharing our handmade Halloween Costumes! I only made 2 of the costumes my girls will be parading about in tonight. And even then, there were only partial creations! So why did it take me soooo long? I asked myself that last night around midnight as I was finishing off a magic wand.

So, first up: My oldest has been into the Harry Potter books lately, and she wanted to be Hermione [...]

Halloween Throw Pillows

Halloween Throw Pillows Potions Bottles

We all know I love decorating for Halloween… and I love making Halloween throw pillows! Our spiderweb pillow died last year, so I decided to make some more! I have wanted to get the Spooktacular Too Witches Brew print by Maude Asbury (I got it from Hawthorne Threads, it looks like they are out, but Stash has some available.) since I saw it last year, but I didn’t know what I’d make with it. HELLOOOOO pillows! The scale of the potion bottles is [...]

Little Zippy Top

LIttle Zippy Top Pattern

After seeing Jess post a whole slew of Little Zippy Tops (a See Kate Sew pattern, and the kid version to the Zippy Top which I’ve made here), I had to purchase the pattern and make some of my own for my crazy daughter.

I found this adorable cotton voile at SAS last yer, and since it was only 1/2 yard, I hadn’t made anything from it yet. Good thing [...]

Fabric Banner for Backdrop

I’ve been meaning to post more pictures of the DIY fabric banner wedding backdrop we made for my brother-in-law’s wedding! I got it back from my in-laws, and immediately hung one of the garlands up in my sewing room. I smooshed the strips closer together to make it fit the space.

Sparkle Quilt Cluck Cluck Sew Pattern

As you might remember, I’ve been sewing my way through the Growing Up Modern quilt book by Allison Harris for quite some time now, I think over a year! This Sparkle quilt has been begging me to make it for a while now, so when I got the quilting itch recently, I busted out some of my fabric and got to work.
