The end of October
When my 3 girls were little they
They would begin thinking about their costumes
for the following year on November 1st.
Over the years we had lots of fun
making and creating their costume ideas.
Nothing ghoulish, just princesses,
pirates, Snow White, Bo Peep, and even Cleopatra.
Unfortunately, here in Colorado,
Trick or Treating usually involves
winter coats and snow boots.
Those lovely costumes
get covered up and hidden.
My October mini is an embroidery
got covered up and hidden in my sewing room
for a couple years. Sigh....
16" x 19"
The embroidery is designed by
You can find it here.
The pattern includes an
iron on transfer for the stitching,
which made it very easy to get started.
It was stitched with DMC floss
on a striped grey and off white fabric.
I worked with one color at at time
rather than stitching one motif at a time.
It's an efficient way to approach it,
but maybe, not as much fun.
The finished piece worked up perfectly
as a mini quilt for October.
The narrow orange border with
the black ric rac sewn on top
gives the appearance of a scalloped edge.
By adding a couple of prairie points
and buttons, it adds some 3-D interest.
Halloween Sampler looks good on the fence.
Happy Halloween 🎃
from all the Halloween Minis.
Until Next Time-
