Small Halloween Touches

by - September 18, 2011

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.  =(
