Yes, I know Halloween is over.
But I'm a little bit behind finishing my "Party with Patrick" project for October.
It's this adorable wall hanging called, "Ghostly Greetings".
It's appliquéd without stitching down the edges of the appliqués.
I did blanket stitch just the moon appliqué and I tacked down the bats, ghosts eyes and the towers so I didn't have to worry about the spray adhesive coming loose.
And those are the tiniest windows on the tower.
I had adhesive all over my fingers trying to tack them down.
I finally stitched them down with yellow thread.
The top layer of the wall hanging has black netting fabric placed over the appliquéd body to give a misty, murky feeling to the dark night.
I used black felt for the rock/castle, bats and ghosts' eyes and mouth.
I tried to give the ghosts a more 3D effect by layering batting and white fabric together.
The back is a cute Halloween flannel fabric I received as a gift from my sewing store.
And I love the fabric I used for the binding.
It just pulls the colors together and makes the wall hanging POP.
It's hanging on my refrigerator as I type this...too cute to set aside for next year just yet.
Thanks for visiting me!
