I bought my first sewing machine about two months ago. It is a Singer no major bells or whistles but has zig zag and button hole maker. I think I really need to find a beginning sewing class to take. Maybe not the very first sewing class there is but one on how to read & understand patterns and their instructions.
While I was working on these I also was getting together with the BFF and we have been creating Halloween projects. While at a local scrapbook store we saw a Halloween collage board and we both said we can do that. She had two plain white canvases so we painted them black. With my Echo Park "The Apothecary Emporium" and a few other embeli we bought I came up with this collage board. The banner was cut from Spellbinder die set she has and for the finishing tough I cut satin ribbon, stabled it to the back and tied it in a cute little bow to hang it from.
The the last is just a silly little card I made with a $1.00 bin stamp I found at Mikes. I love skulls and ones with a bow are just a bonus.
I hope your weather is as nice as our right now. I have opened all doors and windows so the nice cool air can just flow on through. I don't think this week it has gotten over 90 degrees. For us that is beautiful but I hear it isn't going to last.
