Halloween is sneaking up on us!
As we announced in early October, we’re hosting a Monster Mash! We’ve been hard at work making monsters in the office. Next week we’ll be giving away all the fabulous prizes we dangled so tantalizingly at the beginning of the month. Need a little reminder as to what those were?
Several books about making softies, a Halloween Fun quilt pattern and design pack from Lunch Box Quilts and a Monster Factory design pack from Urban Threads all waiting to be won.
So get to stitching! All you have to do to win is make something a little ghoulish and post a pic of it to the CME Flickr group (which you can find here). We encourage you to then give away your creation to someone and pass along the Halloween spirit this coming week.
Trying to decide what to make? This week, Jill made an Orange Crush Monster softie. He’s a dapper fellow decked out and ready for a night on the town. She used the Urban Threads Monster Factory design pack. Which, by the by, is on sale right now! Through October 31, 2013 you can purchase the designs in this fabulous pack for $1 a piece or $27 for the whole thing.
You have until the morning of Halloween (October 31) to post a pic of your monster. The editors will select the winners and send messages to ask for their mailing address. Then go have a fantastic Halloween!
Let us know how it’s going! Feel free to post in progress pics!
Here are some ideas for things to make:
Make these little in the hoop monster bags! The designs are free through October 31. These treat bags filled with candy are sure to charm even the grumpiest ghosts.
Visit And Sew We Craft for a free pattern and stitch up a monster softie for someone special.
Check out how the Urban Threads team put the Monster Factory set to work for them. They made softies, sweatshirts and more! Try out one of their fantastic designs while the pack is on sale.
Take Jill’s lead and use the free pattern at It’s Always Autumn to make a fun friend to accompany (or surprise) a trick-or-treater.
Embroidered or not, it doesn’t matter! Just get to stitching and posting picks to share some Halloween joy this season. Plus you’ll be rewarded with fabulous prizes! We can’t wait to see what you make!
