Halloween Haunts 2015 Blog Hop

Happy Halloween!!
 
 
 
It's my day to show you what I made for this fun blog hop.  I'm sorry that I only have one project.  We had lots of time to create as many goodies as we wanted, but it just wasn't a great summer for creativity.
 
This hop was hosted an organized by Marian of Seams To Be Sew.  Thank you for taking on the huge task of organizing this large hop and all of the hoppers.  You can find the full list of participants on Marian's blog.  Today's participants are linked at the bottom of this post. 
 
So here you have it....one project....but I took lots of pictures to make it look like more!  Are you fooled?! 
 
I made a small hanging to fit my table stand and used an Amy Bradley pattern.  It's from a whole quilt of different characters but I liked the ghost best.
 
 

A little close up of the applique.  I normally double the fabric on light colored fabrics so that you can't see through them.  Because this was a ghost, I wanted that see-through look.





Those creepy hands in the picture above came from the Dollar Tree.  They are tongs...salad tongs....handing out candy tongs, whatever.  I've got to tell you that they are actually really well made.  They're solid plastic and, of course, only $1.00!  I bought a couple of pairs to place around the house.  Get em' while you can if there are any still hanging around the Dollar Tree!


And what would Halloween be without a couple of pictures featuring the Sarducci Brothers?!!  After all, Halloween is their favorite holiday.

 
 
Rat riding.....the latest carnival attraction!
 

 Please visit the other ghoulish crafters that are joining me today.  Here's a list of today's participants and links to their sites.

  10. If those Sarducci Brothers hadn't made an appearance I woulda been sorely disappointed. :) Now those Skull tongs are to die for, I so wish we had a dollar store, I'd have hopped right into my car.. But best of all is that ghost, that is to cute, and I love that the fabric shadows thru to the background, great idea, and technique.
