I'm back to share a couple of embroidered ornaments I made for the 13 Days swap. My partner has a Halloween tree so I wanted to make some ornaments for her. I love making little embroidered ornaments, so that's what I decided to do. I took a couple Sublime Stitching patterns and tweaked them to spook them up a bit.
I used one of the houses from this pattern set and turned into a haunted house.
I added a little ghost in the window.
Then I used a nesting doll from this pattern set and added spooky elements.
Like a little blood drip.
And a jack-o-lantern face.
I backed them both with Halloween fabric, stuffed them and added a bit of ribbon so they could hang on the tree. I love how they turned out and it was fun thinking of ways to spookify the original patterns.
Have you ever altered a pattern to fit a theme or holiday?
