I made some appliqued pillows for the couch, a sinister vampire grin and orange sateen bats. I made them to go along with the awesome vintage design pillows we got from Target (I always love a Target Halloween!). Sewing a pillow cover for inserts is always the way to go, because it’s so easy to change out the cover on your pillows when the occasion calls for it.
The little pumpkin in the middle is a costume I’m still working on for a 9-month-old baby girl, made from the same velveteen I backed the throw quilt with. Nothing is cuter than babies in sparkly tights, so I’m adding some hand detailing with metallic embroidery floss around the eyes, nose, and mouth of the jack-o-lantern to give it a shiny glow to go with the tights. It will have a tiny tulle skirt to go on the baby so the pumpkin puffs out more. More photos when I’m done with the costume!
