Pumpkin Face Throw

I know this is a real time consuming project but I had to post this because I love the pumpkin faces.
Instructions here

Sewing Room Organization Part 1

I am going to be showing how I organized my sewing room. I will start with this wall. The crate is covered up by marvel heroes fabric. I hated that thing without it but it was the only thing that could hold my albums.
Laura Gunn of Paint in My Hair gives a pdf tutorial on how to make a cover right here

From Cat on a Limb-there's a tutorial on how to cover a soda carrier here
I didn't bother covering mine since I liked how it looked. I put all my glues in mine.

Halloween Costumes Toy Story's Woody and Jessie Part 2

Here is the start of Woody's shirt. I bought a very light yellow shirt at Goodwill. I started marking the lines with a ruler and sharpie. I ended up dying this in Rit Dye color lemon yellow to get it a lot darker.

I used a t-shirt to outline my vest. I had to cut the back part twice. I had to measure it on my son a few times to get the right fit. I lined the vest with black flannel and used a black and white trim around the vest.

This is how it looks so far. I bought the bandana at JoAnn Fabrics for 50% off. I have more to show you tomorrow including Jessie's costume.
