I love Halloween (the fun, colorful, spookypersonalized graduation frames, Halloween, not the uber scary, gory, Halloween) and try to add a few fun DIY Halloween decorations to my home each year.? This?DIY Trick or Treat Canvas Halloween Banner?is so easy to make, you don’;t even need a sewing machine!

I have a really BIG collection of Halloween fabrics and I’;m always looking for more ways to use up my stash. This canvas banner is made primarily from the fabric that I used for my Halloween Hexagon Quilt?(CLICK here to see it;?also another decoration that I can’;t wait to get out). ?One day as?I was rummaging through the scraps I got the idea to use some of them to make this Halloween Banner.

18″; x 24″; piece of white canvas or twill or home decor fabric

Scraps of Halloween fabric –; you can buy Halloween fabric HERE

A piece of paper backed fusible web

20″; dowel rod

1/4″; Steam a Seam

Ribbon

Iron

“;Trick or Treat”; Template –; download for free on my site

Spider Buttons

Print out the template and trace the letters onto a piece of paper backed fusible web. Yes, they are backward on purpose.

Trace the “;T”; 3 times and?the “;R”; 3 times (so you have the correct letters to spell TRICK OR TREAT)

Cut out letters loosely and press onto the wrong side of your fabric scraps

Cut out again this time precisely.

Measure the center of the 18″; side of your 18″; x 24″; piece of fabric. Mark it.

Measure down 18″; on each 24″; side of the fabric. Mark each spot.

Draw a line from the 18″; mark to the center of the fabric. Do the same for the other side of the fabric.

Cut fabric along these lines so that you have the banner shape.

Fold under the raw edges of all sides except the top 3/8″; and press. ?Use a piece of steam a seam to hold the hem in place.

On the top of the banner fold down 1″; and stitch along the raw edge a straight line- this will make the pocket to hold the dowel rod.

Lay the cut letters out where you’;d like them. Peel off the paper backing and iron in place.

Embellish with spider buttons as you like!

Now you’;ve got a cute banner that you can hang on your front door, above your fireplace mantle or on your wall. ?Enjoy!!

Ready for warmer weather and outside fun? Ready for a new cap sharing the season’s desire for new growth and beauty? Creating an embroidered cap on my home single needle embroidery machine was quick and fun. I used the embroidery accessory that is a hoop insert called the Hoop ‘N’ Buddyz. This insert will make it easier to embroider a cap on my BERNINA embroidery machine. I used the BERNINA 790 PLUS, but the insert works with the Large Oval embroidery hoop on most BERNINA embroidery machines.

When tragedy strikes, the quilting community pulls together to show the best of humanity. Due to the recent tragic events in Las Vegas, various groups are shouldering the tasks of providing comfort and support to those who were affected. Community members have donated blood, raised money for victims, and held candlelight vigils and prayers. Local quilting guilds are currently creating quilts for the victims and their families.

It is deep in summer here and we’ve been at the beach and pool a ton already. All this fun in the sun has made me face the fact that swimsuits wear out and need updating regularly, so I started hunting for some fun new patterns to round out my bathing suit wardrobe. Making swimsuits is one of my favorite parts of summer!
