Call me an “overachiever” of sorts, but I am always working ONE or TWO Holidays ahead of the calendar!It’s a curse…I know!
Today, I can’t stop thinking about Halloween and all the Super Cute designs here at Baby Kay’s Applique for me to choose from!
Gracious Alive…it is so hard to narrow it down to just one!
So I will!
I decided on the Applique called “Cute Ghost on Candy Corn”…he is just so darn adorable with those EYES!I wanted to add the nickname “Charlie” for sweet little Charlotte to personalize it just for her…so I chose the “Jambo Font” in 1 inch size.The combination is just PERFECT for a Halloween Trick or Treat Bag that Charlie will be able to use for years to come!
Let’s get started…
I am using my 8×8 FULL Sized Fast Frame because I wanted to put the largest size of theGhost I could possibly fit onto my little Black Canvas Tote Bag.My design will finish off at about 6” wide X 7 3/4” tall and will have approximately 14,500 stitches…which is not bad at all in my opinion, simply because the details of this little guy are over the top!
Here she goes…
I chose to use the White Glitter Mirror Canvas for the eyes of the ghost and the tip of the candy corn…and I love the way it sparkles on this bag.If you haven’t used this product before…be sure to give it a try…you will be so glad you did!
***Remember all the items used to make this project will be listed at the end of the Blog Post in the Tools of the Trade!
As my Ghost design stitched away…very smoothly, I might add…I could not resist snapping this picture of the little guy from this angle…
He’s hanging on that big piece of candy corn like he’s saying…
It just makes my Heart Sing…how ’bout YOU?
Woohoo…I am officially into the Halloween Holiday with this adorable Trick or Treat Bag for Sweet Charlie!
Gotta LOVE it Bunches!
