Sew Something for Halloween
I love the multi coloured stars best, and the mummys. But once I had cut the charm squares up I had no whole mummys, or witches or monsters or the cuter characters in this cushion. The colours are not what I would usually use but I really love it and maybe one day I will do modern quilting! I think this is modern quilting.... But it is a pretty simple version I guess.
I had some black pom poms for trim and they were pretty tricky to use but so worth it - I love them.
It has 6 sides and the poles are 19mm hard wood. We could not buy cheap wooden poles here! I didn't want plastic. I wanted 26mm (~1") but settled for 19mm (~3/4") which is fine as they are not bendy. The poles are 2.4m long and will be cut down a little. I will make a round or hexagonal floor (quilt) to be used inside it. My son keeps asking if he can sleep in it which is so cute. He is so nice about everything I make for him. I hope it continues. The cushion is really for him to use in the teepee as he likes to have cushions, pillows and quilts in there to make it cosy.
More on the teepee when it is finished.
