Ghastlie Creation

following the Ghastlie Blog Hop

I even created my own Ghastlie



I wanted it to look scrappy
I cut out the motifs, and then used embroidary floss to sew them on

I used 3 layers of fabric for the ruffles down the front and long the pockets

If I do this again I will graduate the ruffles - they aren't as fluffy as I would have liked.

This really took no time at all and I think I am starting to look for something like it for Thanksgiving!

Hugs to you all

PS - Don't forget to VOTE tomorrow

Where is everyone?

Oh where, oh where
Has my followers  gone?
Oh where, oh where can they be?
With their fabric cut short
And their comments all gone
Oh where, oh where can they be?

You have been very quiet - I am leaving my Pay it Forward "giveaway" open until Nov 11

I need 3 friends to PLAY!
