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?

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