For a Boo-tiful Halloween


When it comes to seasonal themes for decorating our homes, yards, and clothing, Halloween is fast surpassing almost every other holiday. And, it's easy to see why. It's just so much fun!

Bats and ghosts, witches and goblins, spiders and haunted houses, and things that go bump in the night...It's all about tricks and treats for the imagination.

So, here's a treat: Designs to fill the witching hours with your own magic touch. Dress up a garment with a new lace shirt set imbued with the mysteries of Halloween night -- cats, bats, and witches, too.

Tote or Candy bag -- It's time for a treat!

And, here's a trick:  Unique decorations of lacey freestanding embroidery, so easy to make. Sew spiders, bats, jack o' lanterns, owls, and more to decorate your windows and table linens.

Costumed critters sewn on bags and shirts will have everyone joining in the fun. These friendly animals can make the night a little less scary for youngsters on their first Halloween forays.

Halloween offers so many opportunities for kids to be creative. Sew up a fabulous trick-or-treat bag and let them design a pumpkin applique for jack-o'-lanterns that are distinctively theirs. With 10 different noses, mouths, and sets of eyes to choose from, your little artists can combine them for hundreds of happy, scary, daffy, wary, goofy expressions, as well as super sweet candy faces.

And, what would Halloween be without great ghost stories? Dramatic thread artistry vividly illustrates the tale of that frightful night in the Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Perfect for jacket backs and framed art. Enjoy the new designs, and Happy Haunting!

On a crisp October night, when we see a cold moon shining through bare trees, we may be reminded of Washington Irving's frightful tale of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and we may glance nervously over our shoulders. Ichabod Crane's famous flight from the headless horseman is artistically illustrated in thread. Three sizes available. The largest size is great for jacket backs or framed pieces. If it's larger than what your embroidery machine can sew, then you'll need to split it before sewing.

Available in three sizes:
8.37"X11.51" and 5.84"X8.02" and 4.85"X6.67"

 As autumn advances and nightfall comes earlier and earlier, the return of dark foggy nights seems to set the scene for frightful tales that send shivers up the spine of even the bravest among us. Imagination goes wild, and the pumpkin field's scarecrow -- friendly in the noonday sun -- turns ominous under the influence of the full moon.

The largest size might be larger than your machine's sewing field, so you'll need to split it
first. Looking for information on splitting? Click here.
Available in three sizes:
9.00"X11.24" and 5.88"X7.35" and 4.85"X6.03"
