Mr. October Wall Hanging
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 =)
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).
