31 Days of Halloween – Nothing But Sincerity

31 Days of Halloween on sewhooked.com

A very happy Halloween my friends!

We made it, it’s the final day of¬†31 Days of Halloween!

Over the last month, we’ve stitched, pieced, cooked and prepared Halloween costumes! We’ve revisited old favorite crafts and discovered new ones. I hope that at least one of my Halloween¬†projects caught your fancy and gave you something fun to work on during the month.

If you’d like to revisit our month of Halloween, simply scroll back through Sewhooked¬†starting with this post or click the banner above for a summary of each day and links to all the Halloween goodness.

Thank you, thank you for sticking with me until the end!

I have one last Halloween-themed craft for you today. It’s ¬†a little something to keep your hands busy while you enjoy watching Halloween movies and hand out candy to trick-or-treaters.

Let’s start with this little clip from one of my all-time Halloween favorites, It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!

I watched this Halloween gem when I was a child and then shared it with my own kids. It’s still a favorite in our house.

Nothing But Sincerity (Peanuts Stitch) by Jennifer Ofenstein

With Linus’ optimism about The Great Pumpkin in mind, I created a little hand embroidery pattern for you that I’m calling Nothing But Sincerity.

This sweet stitch is 7″ x 10″, perfect for a 12″ (12 1/2″ unfinished) block.

My version is entirely backstitched, but feel free to use any stitch you like.

Won’t it make a lovely pillow or addition to a Halloween quilt?

Nothing But Sincerity (Peanuts Stitch) by Jennifer Ofenstein

The pumpkin was inspired by the scene in the clip above.

31 Days of Halloween – Potions Book

31 Days of Halloween on sewhooked.com

Happy Wednesday! We’re counting down the final few days of¬†31 Days of Halloween!

Today, I’m sharing an easy way to create your own potions book!

Potions Book

Printable Potions Book

recipes adapted from Recipe Goldmine

Magical Drafts & Potions contains seven simple recipes for the young witch or wizard.

Originally created way back in 2006 for the very same Craftster Swap as the Triwizard Tee, this easy peasy Printable Potions Book is simple to make with just a few ingredients.

See what I did there? ūüėČ

To create your own copy, you’ll need a notebook or journal with removable pages small enough to run through your printer. The book I used had a tie that kept all the pages in and was close to standard printer paper size, making it easier to print the pages. Print the recipes on your pages (either one to a page or front and back, depending on how many sheets you have), insert them back in the book and you’re ready to go!

For a fancy touch, tear the outside cover sheet (shown, above) and decoupage on the front of the book.

Want something easier? Try printing, punching holes and popping in a binder or tying the pages together with raffia or twine.

You can also print the pages, and cut them down for a smaller version or you can get fancy pants and try Book Binding videos for more fun ideas.

Potion Book

Of course, my potions book has a Harry Potter theme. I mean, it be would, right?

31 Days of Halloween – Eyeballs!

31 Days of Halloween on sewhooked.com

Welcome to the final Monday of 31 Days of Halloween!

While planning the 31 Days of Halloween, it occurred to me that a whole lot of my Harry Potter themed patterns would work well for Halloween projects. Near the top of the list was Moody’s Magical Eye. I mean, what is creepier than a disembodied eyeball?!

Moody's Eye 2014 update

5″ paper pieced (free pattern!)

Quilt Idea from Mad Eye's Eyeball Pattern (sewhooked.com)

With that in mind, I share not on the free pattern today, but a fun quilt layout that could be created using this single pattern.

Eyeball Table Runner using Mad Eye's Magical Eye pattern (sewhooked.com)

Or, if you need a fun, but creepy table runner, just a few eyeballs will do!

Get more of my Harry Potter patterns here.

There was a little extra dough so we made Mad Eye Moody. #gingerbreadcookies

While searching my flickr photos, I came across this Mad Eye cookie from last year. Because, Harry Potter, obviously!
