For the Monster Swap, I made my partner a table runner!  I'm quite proud of it, because my sewing skills are shaky, at best.

Here are upclose shots of the ends:




(I so don't know sewing terms, so please forgive me as I stumble my way through my process).  The green fabric is home dec fabric, and its a 1/2 yard wide and 54" long.  I started by ironing over the edges on the shortest edges and then sewing them.  The polka-dot fabric is Halloween fabric.  I ironed over the long edges of this fabric and then top stitched (I believe that what its called) it onto the green fabric.  I then ironed over the long edges of the green fabric, that included a bit of the polka-dot.

I found the images of the monsters online, printed them out cut them out with freezer paper and used that as my stencil.  I used fabric paint, and then freehand painted the edges in black fabric paint.

Then, to add some bling, I sewed on some sequins and beads to the bottom of it.


Here's the whole thing laid out on my table. 

Thanks for looking!

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

Very nice! Your description was GREAT! You didn't use the word "thingamabob" even once, so you're doing fine. I love the table runner, super creative!

I will do personal swaps. Cheesy
I have a few skeins of Caron Simply Soft I would love to supply swap with anyone for other types of yarn, I am finding the yarn a tad hard to work with.
