MooshieStitch Monday: Halloween Ghosts Pattern

Halloween week is upon us and I have one more spooky project to share.

I have a pattern for you! It's a vampire ghost and a Frankenstein ghost.

I decided to use the pattern to make little hanging decorations for Halloween!

I traced the ghosts with a water soluble pen and stitched them up.

For the vampire, I added some "blood" on the teeth :)

Using my pinking shears, I cut the ghosts fabric and black felt into rectangles.

Then, I attached the ghosts onto the felt rectangles with straight stitches around the edges and trimmed the felt down a bit - I thought the felt rectangles were a little too big...

I attached a piece of black ribbon with french knots onto the felt so I could hang them!

Up close!

If you don't want hanging decorations, you can stitch these ghosts however you like! 

I was thinking maybe stitched onto little fabric treat bags? 

Or stitched on a pillow case that will be used for trick-or-treating? 

(Or maybe I am the only one who used a pillow case as my candy bag for trick-or-treating as a kid?)

Print the pattern, stitch up these ghosts, and share your photos on the Flickr Embroidery Group!


Happy Halloween!




Hi! I'm Michelle (aka Mooshie) and I've been stitching since 2007. I own more embroidery hoops than I will ever need and am a borderline hoarder of floss.
