Halloween Craft, cont.

Vampire drawing and haiku

I completely forgot yesterday to include a photo of the drawing and poem that inspired the adorable (and not very scary) Halloween pillowcase. The drawing is outlined in glue, which made it really easy to make a rubbing of, which I used as my template.

Halloween Banner from scraps

I put the banner in the window right away, so please excuse the crappy picture (I must still be in Honey Badger mode). It’s not very amazing, but it used up scraps and I did go so far as to free-piece the word Boo after watching Tonya on The Quilt Show. I also quilted the banner with a green spiderweb pattern. That turned out pretty cool.

To See Vampires

Halloween pillowcase

Two years ago my daughter wrote this cute poem about vampires and drew an equally cute picture in class. This year, I found owl fabric that I absolutely loved and decided to put it all together. I started with a fun pillowcase she can use every October.

Vampire Girl Pillowcase and Treat Bag

Yes, I know the owls are sideways to the poem, and the vamp girl is sideways on the pillow, but we don’t care (kinda like Honey Badgers). The shapes all work for me.

I made a trick or treat bag with the leftover fabric too. That’s a dragon inside — watch your fingers!

Tote bag for Trick or Treating

I still have a few scraps left. I may make a banner for our front window and call that seasonal decorations.
