I haven't had a chance to organize or participate in many craft swaps lately due to my busy work schedule but when kittykill posted the Vintage Halloween Swap on Craftster, I couldn't resist joining!! I love Halloween crafting and I'm really excited to get the house dressed up for the holiday this year.
This embroidered wall hanging was one of the goodies I made for my partner. It was inspired by a set of coasters she had on her Pinterest.
I made this by tracing the designs and cutting out corresponding felt pieces for each spooky face. I added small stitched details using single strands of DMC embroidery floss. Once I had all of the faces complete, I sewed them to orange felt squares and arranged them on a larger piece of black felt.
I decided that the hanging needed more length so I stamped "trick or treat" on a piece of linen and stitched that to orange felt using my sewing machine.
I had a great time in this swap. I'll be sharing a couple of other projects I made for the package soon and am excited for my own package to arrive!!
Hope you have a great weekend! I woke up with a nasty sore throat so I think my day will be filled with hot tea and a Law and Order marathon :).
