Trick or Treat Door Hangers

I spent Thursday ninth tracing out all the pattern pieces needed for the girls’ costumes. That’s right, I’m not done yet and Halloween is a week away. I’ll get it done.

On Friday I didn’t feel like cutting fabric. The kids and I had a pj day and made cookies, and that night I spent time watching tv with Danny.

I did spend a little bit of time in my sewing room sporadically throughout the day. I made up some Halloween door hangers. I made the first one (orange trick, yellow treat) in the morning before Danica went to school. She asked to take it to her kindergarten class.


I was just finishing the second one (yellow trick, orange treat) when Danny brought Danica home from school. I sent this one off to Danny’s best friend’s house.


Side note. We went there this morning and the door hanger was on the door. I get overly anxious giving people things I make. I second guess what I’ve made and think that it’s terrible and people will just throw it in the trash. So, it was nice to see it actually being used. Maybe they put it on just because I was coming over. Who knows. But it was on display and that made me happy. Thanks guys!

After the girls went to bed I whipped one up for us (orange trick and treat). I left it on the front door for the girls to see on their way upstairs in the morning.

About manningthemachine

I'm Laura. Mama to four, and wife to one awesome guy. I'm ever so slightly sarcastic. Just a little bit. I like to quote movies, but since our house is managed by little people, most of those quotes come from kiddie shows. At least my husband generally gets the references. It makes me feel less awkward. I took sewing lessons starting at the age of 8, through the Kids Can Sew program. I took lessons for four or five years. Then I became a snotty teen and decided sewing was lame. I've repented of my ways, and enjoy sewing for my little ones. And sometimes other people. And almost never for myself. Oh hey. My blog name. "Manning The Machine." I think it's probably only funny if you know me in real life. And even then, maybe it is only funny to me. My last name is Manning. This is a blog about my sewing. Manning The (Sewing) Machine. Do you get it? Do you? No. That's fine. I think it's funny even if you don't.
