It is almost BOO Day! This month as the featured designer for KUNIN Felt I had great fun designing with their Halloween Seasonal Felt, vibrant purple and orange with embossed spiders and pumpkins. KUNIN felt is made with ecofil which is the process of turning plastic water bottles into their fun felt! As part of the Smoothfoam Design Team I combined a Smoothfoam egg and KUNIN seasonal felt to create this wee witch! Full instructions found on the Smoothfoam blog. I love to sew but sometimes it is also fun to make a project look like it is sewn and this little witch is a so easy no sew design. Just glue!
This little witch has a very tiny hat. I also made a very large hat sporting two not so scary spiders for KUNIN. It is hard for a spider to look scary when it has eyelashes and wears a bow! I just could never get into the scary side of Halloween. Scary movies still give me nightmares so I spend much of this time of year trying to avoid TV. A few years ago I went to the movies to see "Interview with a Vampire", somehow I was talked into it, all I can say is I had my eyes shut most of the time and screamed out loud still at least twice! Never again, just give me "Ghostbusters".
Halloween trick or treaters, parties, decorations, it is a very colorful and creative time of year! Little ones and not so little ones are transformed into all kinds of creatures. My daughter just went to a Halloween party dressed as a makeup table, a box top over her head covered by a tablecloth and glued on makeup. Having her birthday close to Halloween the parties were always filled with costumed kids and activities like pin the broom on the witch and pumpkin or mask decorating. I must admit to also enjoying dressing up for the night too while handing out the treats! Last year I sported a purple feather trimmed witch hat. What are you thinking about dressing up as? Happy Halloween!
