I made this felt wall hanging for my lovely partner in the Vintage Halloween swap. I found the spooky faces in her Pinterest. They were coasters but I thought the designs would look neat in felt.

I cut out all of the felt pieces and then stitched them together and added details. It was mostly done with back stitch so nothing fancy! I added the stamped linen 'trick or treat' note because I felt like the piece needed to be a bit longer.







Happy Halloween!!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Even before seeing your stamping-signature, I thought it would be made by you!

Lovely, which isn't the right word for a Halloween themed spooky faces wall hanging, but it still is.
Your stitching is so neat, Lime!

I love it!  Cheesy

oh my goodness I love this! I found these same images a few years ago and printed them out and used them for some magnets. That was before I started stitching, so it never occurred to me to do something like that with it. This is adorable!
