Is it too early to start with Halloween posts?
Well, I am going to anyways since it is my favorite holiday and I have probably the easiest Halloween embroidery project ever to show you....
I remember making these as a kid with Kleenex and markers - anyone else?!?
What You Need:
7.5" x 7.5" square white fabric
Black embroidery floss
Black or white ribbon
Lollipops (I used Tootsie Roll Pops)
Basic supplies: small hoop, scissors, pencil/transfer pen
1. Draw a ghost face on your fabric with a pencil or transfer pen. I went very basic with 3 ovals for eyes and a mouth - but get creative and choose whatever ghost face you like!
2. Stitch the eyes and mouth in satin stitch with black floss.
Don't know the satin stitch? Here is an easy tutorial to learn it!
First eye complete...
3. Remove the fabric from the hoop - grab a lollipop and a piece of ribbon or yarn!
I was so lazy that I didn't even bother to iron the hoop marks in my fabric - you don't really see them once you tie the ribbon around your ghost.
4. Tie the fabric around the lollipop with your ribbon - and you are done!
I used both black and white 1/4 inch ribbon.
On one of my ghosts I stitched the word "Boo!"
Really easy, right?? I hope you decide to make some ghosts for Halloween this year.
If you do, be sure to post your ghost photos in the Feeling Stitchy Flickr Group
