Well, this past week was a bust. Pretty much everyone has been sick at least once, if not twice, in the past two weeks including myself and my husband. Bea even had to miss her school fieldtrip to the pumpkin patch. Amazingly, I did manage to get these pillow covers made for Halloween.
Esther LOVES to decorate for Halloween, so on Thursday while Veronica took her nap, we made these out of a Moda Haunted Mansion charm pack I bought last year. Here she is looking quite unwell while modeling the new covers. We had several takes of this photo and this was the best shot…
These were easy to make. I didn’t even quilt the fronts. Since the edges of the charms are already pinked, I wasn’t too worried about unfinished seams. Plus, the window for Halloween decor is kind of short, so I don’t see them getting washed too often. After sewing together the charms in a 3 x 3 square, I added orange or purple frames to make the front 16 x 16 and then sewed a contrasting envelope style back. Super fast and easy!
I have some pieces cut out for a Halloween quilt, but realistically I won’t get it done until next Halloween:) I was thinking of trying to swap some of my Halloween fabric leftovers. Does anyone know a reputable site for swapping fabric?
