I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween! Ours was very nice. My grandmother drove up from SC to visit and my parents came down from VA. It was a very busy weekend but not too busy to throw in a few projects!!
Thursday evening I was looking through some friends Halloween pictures and saw they had the cutest personalized Treat-or-Treat Bags...and my kids had none...Oops a little bit of an oversight on my part.
At 10PM I decided that was going to change. I was going to make my kids some custom trick-or-treat bags. No pattern...no problem. I've never appliqued...I'm not afraid!! A couple hours later....TA-DA!
This was my first attempt at applique and let me tell you I am hooked!! I won a give-away from Katie's Nesting Spot from You Can Make This and it had all of these wonderful applique projects. I didn't have time to read or attempt my hand at these complex projects. So I skimmed over the "How-to booklet" and just made my own templates and just went for it! I can totally see a lot more applique projects in my future!
My kids got to do a trial run on Friday and we went Trick-or-Treating in the Living room. Yep, they will work!
Here they are all done up for the big night!! W- is a dog "Butler" and L- is a cat- "Buster" my parents animals!
The fun didn't stop there. My wonderful and creative grandma rolled into town with her own project for the kids and everyone participated!!
Mamma II brought the supplies to make Chocolate-Peanut butter Spiders! YUMMY!
Here is our spooky spider!!
I hope everyone had a fun-filled Halloween!
BTW- Did anyone else heart start beating a little bit faster now that Halloween is over and Christmas is RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!?!? Yikes!!
