Halloween Tie October 30, 2013Posted by Pam in KC in Uncategorized.
“Do you have any Halloween Fabric?” was the question from my husband this evening. Turns out he wanted a Halloween tie.
Several years ago I bought 5 or 6 yards of this Disney Halloween print with the intention of making a Stack ‘n Whack quilt. But then decided there wasn’t enough motion in the background. Until about a year ago, it was the only Halloween fabric in my stash. Since then, I’ve been given some FQs, scraps and have bought my own FQs.
Side one was decided. Now to find side two. It clearly wasn’t going to be Halloween fabric. Briefly we thought about making the other side Christmas. But then we rooted through my music fabric. When I was buying music fabric, if I thought the print would be good for a tie, I bought 1 1/4 yards.
I opened the drawer where I last saw the tie pattern (“The Two Soup Tie by Fasturn patterns # 100) and was rewarded with not only the pattern but with the interfacing traced off. All I had to do was press it to the fabric, cut, stitch, turn and sew up a 2” opening.
DH will be decked out in holiday spirit tomorrow as he substitute teaches.
