Some Halloween Sewing

Here are a few goodies for your eyes
This apron was actually sewn back in September. I think. I pinned it last fall and never found the time to make it, although I did buy the fabric. So, this fall it made a reappearance and I got it done!
Since I stole borrowed the idea from someone's etsy site, I didn't have a pattern, so I just kind of made due, combined 2 different patterns and voila, here it is.
Here is the original:
Pretty close, right? I love how it turned out and it makes me feel cute when I wear it :)
In other halloween news:

Over the summer I became obsessed with making these kitchen towels that hang on the oven handle.
No more towels on the floor. Or the stove. Or the counter. No more searching for one when your hands are dripping wet.
The two towels on the right are from Jen. You may remember that she made them for me last year for our Santa Sack Swap. They used to look like this:

I just added the strips of fabric at the top to make them hangable. Hope you don't mind Jen!
And, last but not least, a project I made last year that I don't think I ever shared:
A folded star pot holder, pattern courtesy of Moda Bake Shop.
This hangs above my stove, and although I don't use it as a pot holder, it certainly could be! Its nice and thick!
That's it for today, thanks for stopping by!

Not at all!! I *thought* the towels looked familiar. I'm glad you added to them to make them your own. I have my Halloween trivet/pot holder out too. My only Halloween decoration. Soooo sad! I will say that your apron is to DIE FOR! SOOO CUTE!
