Halloween decor

Hello Guys,

In Hungary, we doesn’t care much about Halloween. Our kids are not running around for sweets, but the decoration items have arrived here too… People started to make pumpkin heads, and organizing parties for adults where they are wearing costumes. This is how the american celebrations are coming slowly to Europe… 🙂

So, I decided to make some items for Halloween – the acorns are for a felt garland, the pumpkins are ornaments… What you think?

How do you decorate your home for Halloween?

Felt reindeer ornament – in pink

Hi again,

 

do you see? I am posting again! Yay! :)))

So… one of my favorite design is my felt reindeer. I have made a lot of them, and still… love them, and I am sure, I’ll make hundreds more in this year too… Somehow no one asked me to create pink or blue one. I was wondering if someone will be interested in this? … I’m not sure, but still… wanted to give it a try.

Here it is (of course available in my shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/grabacoffee)

1st drawing this year (and in this blog :))

Hello Guys,

just checked my list, and updated it yesterday, and I have to say, I won’t finish if I only make my jewelries. With in my mind the feeling that I should finish my older projects, I decided to start drawing something. Generally because in Craftser, I’ve found a swap thread where members should make some embroidery with an “unexpected” thing attached. I was thinking about some felt + embroidery picture. Unfortunately I cannot join to that scrap thread (I am not a member for 1 month there, did not participated a thing like that yet, etc.), so I just drawn my thoughts out. 10 drawings are on my list, so here is the first one.

I am posting the pictures step-by-step to show you, how am I DAMAGED my own drawings 🙂

So, here is the 1st stage, where I was draw that down:

Then, I have used a black marker to see the lines:

 

Here is my first mistake: started with the sun, then went down, etc… so it wasn’t dry, and I blur the line. Like this:

 

Then, here are the colors. I am not sure if I choose the right ones… maybe if I make an embroidery with this template, I’ll use separate colors.

 

So… that’s it. My first one this year. 9 more to come.. 😀
