Well it is my day to show you my projects. I pretty much kept it simple this year. I had a larger project planned, but coming off of EQ Seasons also, I just didn’t have time to even implement it.
Instead I chose to create something I didn’t have any of.. and that is some Halloween Mugrugs. I know many of you have tons of them, but I’m still just starting on my quest to collect them. It was only earlier this year that I made my first few mugrugs. However I used purchased designs for those, this time I just created my own from some designs I already had, and some new ones..
So here is what I’ve been up to…
I’m sure you recognize this Ghoulish Hand, you’ve been trying to win the patterns for it for this entire hop. I re-stitched this out in the mugrug size and I added the spiders. I’m quite happy with how it turned out. If I’d used a different background, the spiders would have shown up better and I would have had purple for my fingernails, but I like the orange also.
As I was stitching the binding down, I kept thinking how I should add a sliver of fabric on the end of that wrist to make a cuff.
The original artwork for the spider and hand are from Delightful Doodles.
I love these Spooky Eyes, they had a little hiccup which I need to fix when I stitched them out, but it’s an easy fix.
Artwork for the Eyes is from JWI Illustrations
Each of my mugrugs has a different finishing technique, in all but one of them I used the same background fabric.
I’m guessing you recognize Ghost On The Edge 2?
This is the mugrug version of Ghosts On The Edge 2.
Frankenstein has always been my favorite character at Halloween, so their is no way I could go without making a Frankenstein mugrug.
All of the mugrugs today are all the same size.
