On Monday Carol over at Fun Threads, posted the pattern for this little cutie, with his full Texas get up that totally translates to Nashville, I HAD to make him. (Hurry the pattern is no longer free after Thursday! He’s soo cute he’s worth paying for though =)
This might be the fastest, first sight to almost completion project, ever!
Monday Night: I printed the pattern, and was super happy and surprised I had the right color fabrics and fat quarters.
Tuesday:  I made him, all that’s left is the binding but I think I want to make another hanging on the back, maybe a turkey?
As Carol promised he went together quickly, and her directions and layouts were great, this was my first ever ‘more than a tee shirt’ applique project, so I was surprised!
I added some embroidery thread to  “tie up the treats” and made a feeble attempt to decorative/texture stitch the boot soles and pumpkin stem. Then hand embroidered “Treats” on the bag, and around the pumpkin.

What are you waiting for, don’t you need a Mr. October?


Bonus Tip:

Grid Ruler on top of an ipad with the screen on = temporary light box… at least until the cat decides Heat ‘n’ bond paper is fun to sit on. (Pepper’s latest idea… sitting in the crockpot, video here).

  2. Pepper looked so sad and confused. I think you need to invest in a bigger Crock-Pot :)
