It's official. I have my first cold of the almost fall season. It seems every time the weather turns unexpectedly, I get a cold. Boo hoo! Given my complete lack of energy this weekend, I was only able to eke out two small Halloween projects. First up is this little spells bag:
I used some leftover coffee dyed fabric I had from last year. I stitched up both sides of the fabric to create a little pouch. I added a touch of polyfil to give the illusion that it might actually be holding wart of toad or eye of newt. Then I hand-stamped the spells coffee tag and tied some tea-stained seam binding to it.
Gather up the seam binding to close up the pouch and you have a petite pretty for Halloween. Then I took some metal tags and hand-stamped some random Halloween images on them.
I add these all around the house in little nooks and crannies that can't seem to fit anything else. Or I might even use them to tie my sons' class Halloween goody bags this year. The possibilities are endless!
Now if you'll excuse me, I must get back to blowing my nose. =(
