And welcome to the Halloween Hoppin' Blog Hop hosted by Marian at Seams To Be Sew. Thank you, Marian, for putting together this fun and inspirational hop for all of us ghoul fiends!
Today is the first day of this SPOOK-tacular hop, and I'm excited to show you what I've been working on. We won't be handing out any treats this year because of Covid 19, so I focused my attention on decorating the inside of the house.
I found a cute trio of ghosts on Pinterest created by Bloomin Minds. The dining room table needed a spot of festive color, so I created this bats and ghosts table runner. They look friendly, don't they? (I was going to applique fangs on the bats, but I didn't want anything scary. We've had enough scary this year.)
I drew the ghosts on a long strip of white cotton fabric with fusible backing underneath. Once the ghosts were adhered to the background, I sewed around them in black to keep them secure and to give them some definition. Their eyes are different sizes of black buttons. Because I wanted their happy grins to stand out, I outlined them with Tulip Slick paint. The bats were cut out and fused to the background, then outlined in white thread.
