Earlier this season I created a paper piecing pattern for a haunted house. You can find it in my shop here
. While my pattern will not teach you how to paper piece (also some times called foundation piecing) I did have a gal who tried it out (her first time paper piecing) and it worked out great. If you want a great tutorial to get you started with paper piecing I suggest this one
. Next up I am trying out my house with Christmas fabrics to see what I can come up with.
The second instagram swap I signed up for was a Halloween mini swap. I love Halloween so this was right up my alley. I decided to use english paper piecing and focus on fabric that had a vintage look, since my partner said she liked vintage Halloween. Again right up my alley! I sewed up one of my Halloween bunting
from Spoonflower, some of my mini treat bags
, and of course had to include some candy & Halloween legos in the mix.
It’s free swatch day over at Spoonflower!! Spoonflower will be having a Free Swatch Day featuring Poly Crepe de Chine starting at 12:00 noon Eastern Time. I forgot to even ever post about the technicolor Halloween fabric collection
I made, so this seems a good time to do that! I’m dreaming of sewing myself up a couple of dresses. One covered in candy and one with bats. You can see all my fabrics here
