Halloween Haunts 2015 Blog Hop - it's my day
Hello everyone, welcome to "In The Boon Docks" today is my day for the Halloween Haunts 2015 Blog Hop! I am so excited to share a little history and some new Halloween projects I have been working on for this hop!
Thank you Marian of Seams To Be Sew for organizing this great hop! I love being back with so many familiar blogs. Many of us have done hops for years together! I am enjoying the new blogs too! So much talent in this hop! I appreciate what you have taken on for everyone's enjoyment!
My Mommy (Joyce) and Daughter Ashley
In 1990, my Mom came for Halloween. I was pregnant and had nothing for my daughter to wear for Halloween. I had never seen my mother sew anything! In a day, she dyed a white sheet and a long sleeve shirt orange. She went shopping for ribbon, elastic, green and black felt. Made a pattern out of newspaper for the pumpkin face, green around the neck, and a hat. Sewed it into this awesome pumpkin costume for my oldest daughter Ashley!
What a great costume! Five other children would wear it before I put it in a keepsake box. See that little green hat, all made of felt and a piece of ribbon. So, if your looking for a easy kid's costume idea this is it. I am sure if you spend the time to make a costume for your child you will cherish it later!
What did I make for the blog hop?
Living with to guys (husband and grandson) I try to find skull fabric whenever I can. When my hubby saw this fabric he wanted a new pouch to keep his medicine! I thought well it is a little Halloweenish.
This little pincushion came out really cute don't you think? I really love Spellbound, by Cotton and Steel! It all started with a 2" hexagon.
Marian has arranged a daily drawing for a Fat Quarter Shop $25 Gift Certificate at her blog during the blog hop. (Awesome)
