Black Cats and Pumpkins

As many as you know, I love Halloween. I love the cooler days and crisp nights, the changing of the leaves and pumpkin spice everything! It's time to pull out some of my favorite projects and put them on display. All of these cute patterns can be found in my Etsy shop, website or on Craftsy.
I enjoy putting this table runner featuring a black cat
waiting for the Trick or Treaters... (I love the tiger striped pumpkins I found at the market last week!)

 I made a cute wall hanging featuring an adorable
black cat peeking out of a Jack o Lantern.... I'm

in love with the striped binding!

Out of some of my scraps I made this
wonky pumpkin coaster, or mug rug. I used
different sized buttons to add to the wonky-ness.
To make this wonky little pumpkin, I started out with a 6" square of orange fabric. Then I did a flip and sew with black fabric to make the 'corners'. I didn't pay attention to keeping it even, this adds to the wonky shape! I used heat n bond light and yellow fabric for the pumpkin's smile and nose. For his goofy little eyes I used two mismatched yellow buttons. A yo-yo embellishes his head for the stem. I used a 6" square of black fabric for the backing, and a piece of scrap batting. I had just enough left over binding for my mini coaster. It's a fun quick and easy project that uses up those little bits you may have left over from you fall, Halloween projects!

Halloween isn't complete without Witchy Poo's Shoe....
