I am finally getting a chance to post what I made for Friday Night Sew In.
I got the idea for this adorable Jack pillow from the October 2011 issue of Create & Decorate magazine. It was fun to make. I enjoyed the fact that both sewing and painting were involved in this project. As usual, I tweaked the instructions a bit. I used freezer paper and made stencils for the parts of Jack. I free hand painted some of him too. I loved the effect of the primitive hand stitching all around him. He is a perfect addition to my Halloween decorations.
I have to straighten my craft room. I keep purchasing new sewing books and I am running out of room. Between that and my cookbooks, I could open a library! I hope everyone has a great week and I am keeping in my thoughts everyone in the path of the perfect storm that will be hitting the East coast. I am far enough inland so we are mostly expecting wind and rain-not that I don't worry about massive power outages! Take care. Nancy
