I made this skull for my partner in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap. It's a skulll pattern I got from Urban Threads. The original pattern also had lettering which named certain parts of the skulls anatomy but I left those out.
I made these two wrap bracelets for my partner in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap (I hope she has opened them ) I used recycled flip flop bangles which I cut up and threaded on to memory wire along with different Halloween charms and colored beads. The large potion charms I used in the green and purple bracelet were from a necklace that broke that I received last year. They were perfect on this project!
I whipped up this hoop for my partner in the Weekend Trick or Treat swap and also used it for the Monthly Hoopla Along since it was created in October and fit the Fall/Halloween theme. I used a back stitch (as usual) for his head and mouth then a satin stitch for his eyes and nose.
Great packages so far! I got super spoiled by Anubisheart. I have no idea how she crafted this all in one weekend.
The bag with amazing Halloween fabric. It's reversible and the inside has some really cool scorpion fabric.
Wrapped up inside the box were three bags of homemade treats which I didn't get a picture of but they were chocolate covered Nutter Butters, chocolate covered pretzel sticks, and Puppy Chow (AKA Muddy Buddies) All of them were so good and the kids and I have been munching away
Also inside the box was a fabulous addition to my Halloween costume for this year which was straight off my Pinterest. A Tutu and witches hat
Inside the bag I also found all this fabulous jewelry
Two stenciled and glittery pillow covers
A zombie head block which I love!
And some assorted store bought goodies which I suppose I may have to share with my kids :p
Thank you so much Anubisheart! I feel overwhelmed with all the great stuff you made and I hope you like your package just as much.
So my partner in the Trick or Treat weekend swap received today per the tracking number so I am going to post the hoop I made her. Since I am still missing Disneyland and Jack Skellington is one of my favorite characters I made him into a hoop.
I was originally planning to make this along with a Zero hoop for myself but since it fit with her likes I decided to whip it up and include it in her package.
I made this for my partner in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap. I had a REALLY hard time sending it away cause I was so happy with how it turned out. I used a little shadow box thingy that I found at Dollar Tree and spray painted it black. Then I used papers, charms, beads, etc to decorate each portion. Almost all of the supplies were from Alpha Stamps and Retro Cafe Art Gallery.
It's not the best picture but my favorite element is the skull in the glass tube. I glued the skull bead to a paper bead I received in a swap, then glued the bead to the cork and shoved some fake moss stuff up in there before I glued the cork to the bottle.
I made this Dr. Who inspired charm bracelet and pendant for geekgirl1000100 in the Make a Friend Swap. It has a compass, stars, a bow tie, pocket watch, BAD WOLF, Passport to represent the psychic paper, sonic screwdriver, and a Converse Sneaker.
Well I have a project I can post since it was received by my partner in the Make a Friend swap. It's not round anymore since I took it out of the hoop and made it into a mug rug so it may not fit the theme anymore but I am going to share anyway!
Here is the Tardis mug rug I made for geekgirl1000100
I liked it a lot more before I decided to "quilt" it.....
I am not very skilled when it comes to the sewing machine. I have a book that I really intend on reading and using to hone these skills a bit more but I just never seem to have the time. When I saw that my partner in the FOC Secret Swap wanted a bag and then I happened upon a fantastic (meaning simple) tutorial for a tote bag I figured I would give it a try.
I ordered some fabulous fabric and got to work cutting it out. Ummm yeah I stink at cutting fabric. I need to learn some tips and maybe get something longer than 13 inches to use to measure. Luckily even though my cutting needs some work the tote itself actually turned out okay after it was all sewn up.
It's fully lined but unfortunately has no pockets It also has those neat "boxy" corners that look all fancy but are REALLY easy to do.
So here it is, the first tote bag I have ever made!
