Halloween Fabric Stash

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love the traditions and fun associated with kids trick-or-treating and the crispness of the autumn air. I love carved pumpkins sitting on porches and the colored leaves as they blow across lawns.

I really love Halloween fabrics. There are so many cute designs that I just cannot resist adding a fat quarter here and a 1/2 yard there to my stash.

I looked at my Halloween stash recently and decided it was overflowing, and I need to pick a project already!

Hmmm, are you wondering what I’ll pick? It is a delightful pattern full of whimsy and mischief from one of my favorite designers. I’ve been working on the first block this week and will post a picture of it when I’ve completed it.

Here’s a hint . . . it’s the same designer who created this crazy cat quilt pattern set that I did a few years ago and is now hanging in my sewing room.

Happy guessing!

Mom, I want a Pokemon birthday party!

My little guy will be celebrating his 7th birthday soon. He asked me for a Pokemon themed party. I’ve been looking at local stores for themed party supplies, but haven’t had too much luck. So, I thought I would make some of the party goods myself.

To start with, I’m going to surprise him on his party day with a special Pikachu shirt. Pikachu is his favorite Pokemon character. I picked up a plain white t-shirt, cut out some fabric scraps, and satin-stitched all around the design.

I think he will be very happy to have his own Pikachu shirt!

Next up, I plan to make some Pokemon themed goodie bags. Wish me luck!
