I took a break from Star blocks to get a head start on the swaps I signed up for.  Being in Ireland with swap partners internationally I try to get ahead of the postal deadline to allow as much time as possible for travel time.  My partner for the Halloween Sewing Swap is quite a distance away so I decided to get cracking!

I  have suitably stalked my swap partner online and poured over the likes and dislikes page and came up with a Boo banner.  I'm using this Tutorial from Fabric Mill.  I've changed it a bit and made it 25% smaller and I'm happy with how it's looking so far.

The swap calls for 3-4 handmade items so I have used some scraps from my RJR Boo Crew fabric.  I'm making placemats based on this Tutorial from Fairy Face Designs.

My favourite part of this fabric range are the dancing skeletons.  I love those guys!

I have lining fabric on order from Etsy and so far so good!  Don't you just love Halloween?

Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. What a fabuous banner you're making!! Halloween fabrics are so fun, especially those dancing skeletons.

  2. I've never done a holiday swap before, lucky partner

  3. I love it!! I have a huge box of just Halloween fabrics, may need to try out that pattern.
