Witchy Wall Hanging

I found this free pattern designed by Quixotic Pixels. I figured since my new favorite hobby is embroidery and I am really lacking in the Halloween decorations ... It was obvious what I needed to do. I made her into a wall hanging! I love the way she turned out! I'm just so excited! I am going to hang her with some ribbon but I need to go get some since I don't have any on hand that will work. I'm thinking brown, maybe a ric rack.
I used some orange and brown fabric by Heidi Grace that I got at Joann's. I know that it isn't technically "Halloween fabric" but I think that it works great. I did a free motion quilting on the orange fabric and a double row of stitching around the witch to help give her a frame. I also used my new skill of hand sewing to sew down the binding. I can't believe how easy it is. It definitely is not as fast as the regular sewing machine, but it looks 10 times better.
I will be smiling for the rest of the day!

I went to School for one year before I married Wade to learn how to embroidery?, such a cute word is bordar is Spanish. That hobby in my opinion,takes much more time than the other things I like to do, but oh! how cute your witch turn out.
Keep smiling Girl!
PS-I declare myself addicted to your blog, your fault!

I cannot believe how quick you pick up on things! That is the cutest "beginner" embroidery project I've ever seen. In fact, I think you're way past beginner. Can't wait to see what you whip up next (after your finger heals, of course)!
