Garretts Halloween Costume





I bought a black sweatshirt and cut the sides open. I made these felt bat wings and sewed them right into the seems. Then I also attatched the center orange belly. Garrett wanted some bat buttons and a bow tie so viola!
For the hat and ears I attatched them with stiffener and covered them with black felt as well. I sewed buttons into the ends of the meterial and nmade button holes in the back so I could make the hat a tight fit.
Today I added new pics including the orange ascot and the booties. He wont be wearing those to trick or treat but in the house he can. Got a great shot of him jumping it looks like he is flying! LOL

A snowman atc I made for a friend!


This atc is felted machine base and then hand done on the details, I added glass black beads for the eyes and buttons. Embroidered red knots for the smile. I tied a piece of hemp for the arms. Used a tweed like fabric for the scarf and hand sewed that down. Then I sewed tiny glass snow beads all over. Making thicker lines where the top of the surfaces would be, ie: the hat brims and top of snow! Machine sewed the edges gingerly so as not to break any of the glass snowflakes! Hope you like it Melissa!

Some Halloween Gothic Arches I made for an ArtChix sister site swap!

Recently I feel God is trying to do a work in my life and I actually felt a little guilty making these Halloween arches. Even though I think it's fun to be festive. So I decided one of my arches would have a bible verse in it warning against what God has to say about such things.
Yes I guess this makes me a hypocrite because then I indulge in the gore and candy. Guess that's one big reason I need Jesus I am a hypcrite who needed forgiveness. I just want my foloowers to know who I serve in my heart! The one true living God Jesus Christ! Please forgive my hypocracies!
