Spoopy Felt Skulls

Celebrate your love of Halloween by making some spoopy felt skulls. Can be worn as barrettes, pins or charms.

Spooky cute is my Halloween aesthetic. Chubby checked ghosts, kittens dressed as witches, and all things spoopy are what I like in my decor and media. Not that I don’t have limits. I once had to nix Ben’s idea of Chibi Slenderman for a Halloween costume. Other than that, though, nothing is too cute. Thus is this week’s craft: spoopy felt skulls.

Fabric Twine Trivet Header

Fabric Twine Trivet

Put that ball of fabric twine sitting in your craft stash to good use by sewing a unique and useful trivet for your kitchen.

Of the many ways to use up scraps, I think making fabric twine is my favorite. I can do it when I am watching television, thus satisfying the part of me that has been indoctrinated from an early age by capitalism to always be occupied*. It’s also a meditative process. And you end up with yards and yards of a new craft material without having to go to the store.

In my book, Sew Witchy, I included a craft project using fabric twine to make altar offering bowls. Since then I’ve been working on the other projects to use the copious amount of twine I have on hand. In fact, I have a major project I’m working on that I’m not quite ready to talk about just yet. However, I do want to share with you one of the projects I’ve been making: fabric twine trivets.
