Halloween 2013

In the autumn the weather turns cold, the leaves change color and fall, and then comes Halloween. This year we used freezer paper stencils to decorate trick-or-treating bags. The spider was a pumpkin carving template, the web/spider were free clip art, and the 'I want candy' was a copy of something I saw on Pinterest. I used the font Hobo STD, and then found some candy clip art.

As for costumes, all were homemade this year. A Mummy, Captain Kirk (I dyed the shirt and painted the collar black), Princess Jasmine (from an old simplicity pattern), and a dragon (another simplicity pattern).


Testing, testing...1 2 3

I have had the privilege of testing some pdf patterns for the designer at Sewing Geek Patterns. They are super cute, easy to follow, and quick to sew up. Definitely something you should check out.
