Autumn has been my favorite season for as long as I can remember. I think I’ve mentioned before that I started sewing because I wanted awesome costumes to wear to the Renaissance Festival, the nearest of which runs in September and October, so there was always another year, another costume to look forward to come the end of summer. The Ren Fest costumes often doubled as Halloween costumes, but if they didn’t, there was yet another costume to create and another reason to head to the sewing machine.
Since I’ve grown up a bit, I don’t dress up for Halloween as often, but I still can usually find a reason to get out some fabric and play as the weather cools. This year I came across this tutorial for fabric pumpkins and decided to try my hand at it. Warning: they’re addictive. And once you make a few you’ll want to take all the pictures of them.
What are you sewing these days? Any big plans for Halloween?
