One of our lovely BERNINA Sewing Celebrities and WeAllSew expert Vanessa Christenson of V and Co. created this spectacular spider web runner using her new BERNINA 780 E.
I had so much fun putting together little outfits for my article in Through the Needle ONLINE Issue #14 (October 2012)! While looking for t-shirts and sweaters to cut up for doll clothes I found this electric lime fabric with little spiders and bats and thought, “Hey! I could make a skirt!” So I did.
October is here, and trick-or-treat time is right around the corner. If you still need to get a treat bag or two together, there’s plenty of time to stitch up a few, and we’ve collected some of our very favorite stitch-it-yourself tutorials. Enjoy, and happy haunting!
Welcome little ghosts and ghoulies with this happy banner. The embroidered letters spell out Trick-or-Treat, and the layers are held together with a simple feather stitch. Don’t have an embroidery machine? Substitute applique or stencils and fabric paint for the stitching. Boo!
