1  Bewitched - Hoopla from the Vintage Halloween Swap in Needlework: Completed Projects by I Sew Cute on: October 21, 2014 08:03:27 AM
Hey y'all! I'm just too excited about this piece I worked on for the Vintage Halloween Swap. My partner has received, so now I can share!
I made a Bewitched hoop based on the intro animation to the original tv show. Smiley
It's mainly appliqued felt & a little embroidery here & there.

The finished hoop. Now I need to make one for myself! Cheesy

I have received something so epic! If I could've designed a wintery theme hoop for myself, it wouldn't touch the beauty & sparkle of the one that .:.Lola.:. stitched for me!

Behold! Unicorn winter magic!!!




....and that is not all...


Seriously, this is the back! My favorite color!!!




I'm feeling kind of bad that the one I made wasn't all beautiful on the back side as on the front, but I hope you like it .:.Lola.:. ...I absolutely adore the one you made for me! Thank you! Smiley

What fun packages to kick off one of the best swap galleries!

I received today from rockingbearranch and my kids are having fun with part of it!

First, here are all the goodies spread out!


This guy is so funny...my kids love him!


A delicate Halloween pumpkin egg! This is a real egg! I put it in a special place to display it through the season & the kids know this is not a toy. (it came in the cute tin with the handmade 'cobweb oil' label)


And the most fabulous Halloween advent calendar ever! We just have to spin the wheel a little & a different # & Halloween image shows through the window! So clever & awesome! I love the design of the whole thing...it's wonderful!

Close up view:


Next to our ghosty lamp for scale:


I also received an envelope with feathers & will come up with a proper project to use them! I love the extras...tell the chickens thank you from me & thank you so very much rockingbearranch... we will be loving your creations for years to come! I'm so glad to have been paired up with you!

4  A Wicked Fascinating Fascinator for Halloween in Halloween Costumes by I Sew Cute on: October 10, 2014 08:14:25 AM
I saw the little pre-made witch hats at my local craft supply store & was inspired to throw together a fun little fascinator as a hostess gift to a friend who is going to have a handmade Halloween party at her house.  Smiley

This is an easy project - minimal sewing skills needed.


Supplies:

Witch hat ( you could make one out of felt if you can't source one...or look online )
headband (I used a padded one covered with satin ribbon)
mardi gras bead strand, skull beads, & feather boa hair clip (I used the Darice brand)


"Tools" Needed
scissors
needle
thread
glue (optional)


First, I sewed a string of mardi gras beads around the base where the brim & hat meet.

Next, I added a skull bead where the 2 ends of the mardi gras beads met with a dab of glue & a few quick stitches.

Then, I positioned the witch hat where I wanted it to rest on the headband.

...and tacked it to the headband on both sides of the brim.

It only took a few stitches to attach the feather boa to the fascinator after I removed it from the little plastic clip it was attached to.
Please note that I didn't stitch it on before attaching the hat to the headband because it was easier to attach to the band without all the loose feathery tendrils getting caught in my thread as I tacked it down.


Voila!


This would look fabulous with other embellishments such as buttons, ribbons, bits of lace, a vintage brooch...the sky's the limit!

This is super cute with these little vintage pumpkin earrings: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436143.msg5252005#msg5252005

Happy Haunting!

5  Halloween Pumpkin Earrings made from Upcycled Vintage Cupcake Toppers in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by I Sew Cute on: October 10, 2014 08:02:34 AM
This is a super easy & fun project for Halloween. Wink



What you'll need:
plastic cupcake toppers (I used Halloween Jack O'lanterns that I bought online).
Earwires
Sandpaper (or a dremel with a sanding drum attachment)
Heavy duty scissors (or wire cutters)
Needle nosed pliers to open jumprings or earwires
Jumprings or Chain (for adding optional length if you like your earrings super dangly)


This is what I started with. As you can see, the pick which sticks into a cupcake needs to go.

Take your wire cutters & trim off the plastic post, then sand it smooth, so there are no sharp edges.


Add your earwire to the top. If you prefer longer earrings, you can add some chain & a jumpring. Make sure they dangle straight. I added the earwire right to the jack o'lantern handle.

Voila! Go rock those festive earrings at your next Halloween soiree! Happy Halloween!

7  Black & Orange Glitter Nails - Manicure for Halloween in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by I Sew Cute on: September 28, 2014 12:54:27 PM
Black and Orange Glitter Manicure for Halloween by isewcute



What you'll need:
Shiny Blackish Nail Polish (I used OPI Lincoln Park After Dark)
Orange Glitter (I used a variety of different orange glitters blended together)
Clear Top Coat Nail Enamel (I used seche vite dry fast top coat)



Brush on Black polish & while it's wet, dip your nail tip into a cup filled with a little glitter.

Tap the loose glitter off & gently use your finger to pat down any glitter sticking up. You don't want to smudge it.
Brush on a coating of clear top coat & let dry. You can add another clear coat if the glitter still feels too rough. I did 2 coats. Wink


Enjoy your Halloween sparkle!   Smiley

Alright y'all, I'll do either bells or a surprise plastic canvas creation.

Very cool rendering of the Nancy Drew image Acadian Driftwood! The quote on the back is funny! Great start to the gallery!
 
Zalphinian, I like the design of your hunger games bookmark...the leaves are beautiful & the kitty is darling!
 
Blupaisan, I love the illustration you did for Acadian Driftwood's Abhorsen books bookmark. The textures are really great to make the characters really pop, but the troll one really cracks me up! I love it!
 
AugustBell... beautiful, beautiful work!
It makes me think of an art quilt & the colors are gorgeous!
 
Toraline, what is the text on the bookmark you made for noodle-bug? I love the subtle sailboats!
 
Pioneer9,  I love the vintage illustration look of the bookmarks you made for noodle-bug. Super fab retro looking spaceman & rockets! The Shakespeare one is my favorite. Smiley
 
Elderflower... I adore your watership down bookmark... bunnies are my favorite & that pulls at my heart strings! I also love your cross stitched rainbow kitties! How did you make it double sided with the quote? Is it 2 pieces sewn together?
 
Pioneer9 - the wizard is really cool... great quote & huzzah for glitter on the bookmarks you made for Toralune. It's so thoughtful to include the book title on the penguin piece. My boy would love both of these!
 
Savvysister - I'm so tickled you like the princess bride piece...it just came to me as soon as I read your swap sign up info. Wink
 
chameleonhound, very cool hunger games bookmark! I like that you made it horizontal with all those trees & textures... you captured a great mood!
 
wizard_pupil - Such pretty beads & ribbon! Beautiful work!
 
 

I've received from whatthepuck - Thank you so much for the super fun & colorful unicorn bookmark! My mini snatched it from me at the post office, but I eventually got it back from her! Cheesy I love the rainbow colors & the fibers you used in the tassel!
Love the fiber tassel on the bird/map bookmark you made for savvysister also! The textures go so great with the images.
