Halloween Preparation.2

It is safe to say that Halloween prep is in full swing at my house. I had to take a short break from stitching and sewing because I was feeling a little under the weather, but as of yesterday, I was back on my feet putting together Halloween themed items.

I have been making felt wreaths like this for many years. I couldn't help putting one together for Halloween this year. It took me about 2 hours to make and 20 sheets each of orange and black felt. If you would like to make one of your own, please check out the tutorial I put together here

Aside from the wreath, I wanted to piece together a fabric border for my witch embroidery. I have accumulated a collection of Halloween fabric, so I added various prints to accent the embroidery. 

The fabric has glitter embedded into it. Who doesn't love glitter? I know I adore it.

Now I need to decide if I should turn this into a pillow or quilt it as a wall hanging. I think it might be cool as a tote bag, too... hmm... so many choices...

Are you up to any Halloween preparation? I would love to know what you're up to!

Until next time.

I love your wreath. It looks so full and happy and your witch embriodery is amazing. Her tights are so cute. I dig either option a pillow is awlays useful but a wall hanging is just as cute. Either way it will be adorable cause you made it! Hope you are feeling better!

I got a load of really good Halloween collectibles at a sale this summer.
I don't ever decorate but think I will this time :)

Your witch is gorgeous! I love her! It would be so cool as a tote, but I would be afraid of getting it messed up (but I'm hell on totes, so...)

Sorry you've been feeling poorly and glad you are back to being well.

love & blessings
