Today is my day to post some spooky Halloween offerings. Thanks to Madame Samm from Sew We Quilt and Wendy of Why Not Kwilt for all their work in organizing this blog hop and keeping everybody in line.
I have for you two small wallhangings. The patterns come from The Heart and Home Co. I picked up kits for both the wallhangings when AQS was in Grand Rapids this year. Unfortunately, I don't know who I purchased them from so I can't give credit to the shop who put together the kits.
First is Ghost. My three-year-old grandson is being a ghost for Halloween. My original intention was to make a trick-or-treat bag out of it for him to use but decided to do the wallhanging instead.
A funny story that I wish I had a picture to go with.....my grandson originally wanted to be a green ghost but in the last couple of weeks changed it to a purple ghost. He went with me to purchase the fabric for his costume, and when I grabbed the white fabric, he told me, "No; purple." So purple it was. I ended up adding bits of cheesecloth over the purple floor-length costume. As we went through the zoo-boo last night, he did in fact look very ghostly....just bits of white floating along.
The second wallhanging was made for my almost 17-month-old granddaughter. The only kit that was available that wasn't scary was Candy Corn, so that's what I got for her. It's quite colorful. When she received it in the mail, she proceeded to carry it around the house with her.
The hangers for both of them were purchased from Ackfeld Manufacturing. They have some wonderful hangers available, not just for the holidays but throughout the year. They come in a variety of finishes and sizes. One of my favorites that I plan to make a quilt to hang on can be found here. Think I could get away with hanging it in my office at work?
Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to visit and leave comments for the other blog hoppers today!
