Trick or Treat Blog Tour for Penny Rose Fabrics


Hi there!

I can't believe Fall is a couple of months away but I am excited for cooler weather and Halloween! It's been ages since I've been around my blog but I'm back, here to share my project for the Trick or Treat blog tour. The fabric is from Carta Bella for Penny Rose Fabric and Riley Blake Design and it's so darn cute!

I made a Halloween table runner (for me it's a counter top runner as my dinner table is out of commission but really with twins I pretty much eat anywhere I can within 5 minutes haha!).

I hand sewn giant EEP's to create the border. I made 2 panels and sandwiched the quilted center fabric in between. I made it reversible, just in case you spill any melted chocolate on it. Yes, I already ate ten of those candy props.

I burned the midnight oil last night and was able to make this cute pillow using economy blocks. I think my favorite thing ever when making things is sewing the binding, specifically with striped fabric. The striped fabric in the Trick or Treat line is so cute and really highlights all the colors in the fabric range.

If you follow me on my Instagram account, I've been making a few things here and there, but have been holding off on big projects until now. Perhaps this is a good time to start on Christmas projects too! See you soon!

  1. I love the way you've brought your creativity in action. The idea, the fabric, the designing , everything fits together like a jigsaw puzzle. Looking forward to your new projects.

  2. Cotton, linen and wool are easy to use. However, they all shrink once washed and dried, so prewashing and drying are recommended before using them for sewing.

  3. One thing is for certain - it pays to invest in quality fabric, as you are going to put a lot of your energy into the project, and you want it to be a success.
