 Grin I couldn't wait - finished bunting*!  Grin

*I think this is probably an English term Cheesy It's just something, usually triangles, strung up for decoration.

I realised my photo links were dead so I've taken new photo's...



And put up in it's new home!

Yeah, I'm watching Black Books Cheesy

So, I've made my Halloween bunting and now I'm not sure what to do to finish it off!

Hmm...so far my options for sewing on are...

1. Cut some skulls out of an old shirt
2. Make some felt shaped bones
3. Felt pumpkins
4. Embroider bones on

Which should I do...or is there a better idea out there??

This is what it looks like at the mo...


I have some old looking cream fabric that I think will be perfect for the bones...

I couldn't wait to finish this so I went with the tassles and skulls!

It reminds me of Dr Zoiberg from Futurama (a good thing I think)!

I used buttons for the eyes because I wanted to give it a homemade and quirky look to go with the wool tassles. I might sew the lines - I might not.

Thank you!

This turned out to be a bigger job than I expected but I'm pleased with the results - the skulls look good all lined up with their odd little eyes!

I needed the patience of a saint to draw, cut out and then sew all the buttons onto the skulls!

The kitchen would be a great place for this - especially if you did crossed knives and forks behind the skull  Grin
