So many good things at the end:
* the "I Spy" Halloween shrine
* the wall quilt
* the embroidered gypsy pillow
* that Frankenstein cross stitch is INTENSE!
* Jack's dual outfit
* the Magic book shrine
* the tiny witch house
* I am in LOVE with the skeleton Loteria-style fabric
* the beautiful scrap fabric quilt from Missing Willow
* the felted slippers
* the zombie brain beanie

I'm not sure if my partner will get to post the rest of the stuff I made for her, so here it is:

Ghost Light Garland







Envelope-Style Pillow Cases









Paper Bat "Insect" Display Shadowbox



Fall Shrine



Cross-stitched Coin Purse



(It has my partner's name stitched on the back.)

Lino Block Tote Print



It seems like the ink may not have adhered very well to the bag, so I hope it made the journey okay!  At any rate, I  included the lino block I carved so that my partner can reproduce the image as many times as she wants.  Wink

It's always hard for me to send off a block when I spent so much time carving it, but at least I was able to make a couple of prints to keep for myself.

Prompt: September - Solitaire
Team: Multimedia
Project Name: Lace Spider Web Hoopla
Brief Description: My partner in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap had this on her Pinterest, so my crafty bff helped me thief repurpose some lace curtains from her MIL's house for the greater crafting good.  Wink Although it easily complements most Halloween decor, this hoopla is meant to stand alone as a decoration.
Project Picture:



For a little more visual interest, I glued some fabrics on the inside and outside edges of the hoop.



Prompt: October - Graveyard Shift
Team: Multimedia
Project Name: Painted Halloween Mini Mason Jar Candle Holders
Brief Description: My partner in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap said she'd like some candle holders.  I saw these all over Pinterest, and thought they were just adorable (I can't wait to recreate them for myself!).  Next time, I'll know just to use a thin single coat of paint to get the best glow through the jars.

The expression on this red guy is by far my favorite.  Grin

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Apparition
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Painted Halloween Mini Mason Candle Jars
Brief Description: My partner said she wanted some candle holders in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap.  I found some adorable painted mason jar projects on Pinterest, but opted to go for a trio of mini-sized Mason jars to facilitate easier shipping.  I think they are super cute, so I'm looking forward to recreating this project for myself!  Next time, I'll make sure to go lighter on the paint -- the colored glow looks best when there is only a single layer of paint on the jar.

Project Name:

Halloween TM Patch
Brief Description: I came up with this mini TM patch using some fabric scraps I had from other projects.  (Side-note: I love the combo of these two fabrics together!)  The finished patch measures a little under 3 x 3 inches, and has a hidden feature: the skulls glow in the dark.

vincentvanbuck, your crow clothespins are fabulous! I've never seen such tiny crows before, but now I'll have to keep my eyes out for them! And, where did you find those fantastic fabrics for your pillows? I love them! And, your pillows came out great!

Thank you!  The crows were from Michaels, I found them at the end of one of the aisles in a 6-pack bag.  I bought both of the fabrics for the pillows at Joann last fall.

Smeddley -- I'm so glad your performance was such a success!  Your costume looks great, and your new Research Project sounds like it's going to be awesome.

Project Name: Halloween TM Patch
Brief Description: I sewed up this little mini TM patch using some fabric scraps from recent projects (I love the combo of these two fabrics together).  The secret component? The skulls glow in the dark.

Project Name: Halloween Envelope Pillow Cases
Project Link I used this tutorial
Brief Description: I have been hemming and hawing over buying my own machine for months, but I finally bit the bullet and purchased one.  Until now, I have had to go to my friend's house every time I was doing a project that required machine sewing, so it's going to be really nice to have 24/7 access to a machine now.  Since this was the very first project I made on my own machine, I definitely threw myself into it 100% without hesitation.
Project Picture:



The pattern really is simple.  The only thing I "messed up" on is that the four pillows aren't exactly the same size -- some of them are a little bit wider and rectangular in shape, which made for a less snug fit.  (I actually like that, because then the pillow isn't busting out of the envelope in the back.)





Here they are lined up on our sofa. The two solid oranges are part of our regular pillow set -- no reason to change them, since the orange color is already perfect for Halloween!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Halloween Envelope Pillow Cases
Project Page Link (if available): I used this tutorial
Brief Description: The "unknown" I tackled for my Astronomy assignment was my brand new sewing machine!  I have been hemming and hawing over buying my own machine for months, but I finally bit the bullet and purchased one.  Trust me, there was plenty of unknown to conquer in this one (30 minutes minimum crafting time, eh?  Took me 45 just to figure out how to properly wind the bobbin.  Huh) but I am really pleased with the outcome.  I made a set of four envelope-style pillow cases for our sofa throws.
