9th Day of Halloween

Ya’ll are getting too smart for me. Guessing what the prize is! I need to take sneakier pictures. :p

Said prize goes to Annette! Congrats & you’ll have an email from me shortly.

The first 3 gals have received their prizes so I’m going to blog them now.

Day 1:

I like making bottle-cap pincushions. They are easy and you can really let your creativity take you away. Yes, you can. No, I do not believe you are not a creative person. Get yourself a copy of Pretty Little Pincushions, Google “bottle-cap pincushion” and make sure you send me the links to what you create. I used super dark purple felt for the cushion parts and white felt die cut (Sizzix paddle punch), and then embroidered Booooooo with glow in the dark Krenik braid. Oh and I stitched a little face with black dmc. The pins are silk pins with Swarovski crystals, except for that tallest pin, that is a pin already topped with a ghost, I of course added a crystal – that’s how I roll. I about peed myself when I found those. I always say when people design things just for you, you should buy them. I bought Michaels out of all they had on the shelf.Β  Now that lapel pin, I saw it on line and said to myself “Self, $7? You can do that for about 15 cents & an afternoon.” They take me about 1/2 hour to make and actually cost closer to 30 cents because I Had To add a crystal. And then magnets. Who doesn’t like fridge magnets? If you don’t, please share so we can use it at your commitment hearing for the funny house.Β  πŸ˜‰

Day 2:

Same ol’ junk. Vampire lips, magnets, pins and ah! New stuff. I’m pretty sure I told you that I bought BBD’s Halloween Stockings, but I did refuse to buy the pricey threads & fabrics. That’s what pieces of funky yellow fabric from Silkweaver that you don’t know to do with are for. And Tacky Velvet Panne, I’ve got yards of it, YARDS. You are looking at the second pumpkin (filled with crushed walnut shells)Β  I made. Apparently circles are a skill I had to practice. The first one… it’s kinda oval. Go ahead laugh, I did. I would also like to point out that orange beads are as rare as hen’s teeth in October. Oh, this stocking is “Eye of Newt”, don’t know if I have a picture of it from the back, but it is that screaming loud orange with black dot that I used to back my screamingly loud Halloween quilt from last year. Go me, using scraps!

Day 3:

I really hope I’m not spoiling this for anyone, but all the winners are getting Vamp Lips & magnets. lol This guy, he kills me. Franken-bun, I *heart* this little guy. First he’s free, wanna make your own? Download! I traced him up and then crayon tinted him (first time, didn’t turn out too badly I think) and used stem & backstitches to outline him. But it’s the trim, acid green with black… what would you call it? Plastic embellishment tackification? As if acid green marabou feathers are tacky on their own. Anyway it’s a Simplicity trim gleefully hoarded at Joann’s. And a pencil. πŸ˜€

And Day 9’s Teaser:

That’s what you get for being good at guessing; something out of left field. :p

Post once for one entry, post again if you mentioned me in your blog, and gals hosting the button on their blog – you only need to post a 3rd time if today is your first day hosting.

    You so rock! I love Frankenbunny. I never thought I’d enjoy embroidery–I’m a cross stitcher doncha know–but over the last couple of years I’ve really developed a love for embroidery, it must be thanks to Jenny Hart.

    I’m trying to figure out how you have the time to make all these things.

  2. Katrina says:

    Missy, you’ve gone above & beyond! The prize packages are great!

  7. beritbunny says:

    All these prizes are so fabulous! I completely agree with you about silkweaver bits being perfect for this project! As for the DARLING little magnets, I think I saw a tutorial somewhere on how to make them–wish I could recall where! Yours are fab; really love the patterns you used!

To think she made so many of the prizes herself is really impressive… I told her she must have been working on them since last Halloween.
