It is exactly three months until The Big Day. I have been in the mood to make spooky stuff for several weeks already, but made my first official project of The Season today.
I have been obsessed with fabric lately, wanting to make art quilts and pillows and things. Problem is, I’m not a great tailor. In fact, I’m a pretty terrible one. I stick with either very simple things, or artsy things where my ineptitude is a feature.
So here is a lovely Halloween pillow. Mistakes were made. I neglected to look up how to prevent lumps before I sewed it shut. And that sewing shut looks a bit like a drunken surgeon performed an appendectomy. Still, I think it’s pretty, and it’s a good size to test shams on. Because shams cannot be lumpen, and need not be sewed shut by hand.
Happy beginning of Halloween, everyone!
