FABRIC FUN

If you haven’t been to Pine Needles this fall, you’re missing out. The Halloween fabric assortment alone is awesome!

Amidst the magic, you’ll find numerous kits. Everything from spool dolls you can make with your kiddos (SO CUTE!) to full and fabulous quilts. Take a look!

This witch dress for 18” dolls is so easy to make. The fabric is pre-outlined in a pattern form, so you can easily cut it and stitch it into a darling costume for your child’s little friend.

YARN YEARNINGS

Emily and her team at Willow Hill Yarn Company have been brewing up a cauldron of their own. In it, they’ve hand-dyed brilliant yarn skeins. The supply is limited. Get yours while the gettin’ is good.

Whether you use this cool custom yarn or another variety, Willow Hill has seasonal patterns to try out. Take this witch hat, for example. It was knit! Isn't that neat?! And those pumpkins? Cutest!

You don’t even have to have knitting/crocheting know-how to enjoy yarn play. This pom spider can be made in minutes and is so sweet. A spider? Sweet? Believe it or not, yes! ;) 

 

PAINT PLAY

The Art Cottage is your project place when it comes to paint. From entertaining watercolor courses to happy make-and-take projects, this is a great season to go from broom to brush!

As any witch will tell you, your cavern (or gingerbread house or wherever it is you call home) is made extra eerie with something you’ve made yourself. You can stop in and make these wood light designs (only $7.50!) in minutes. No hocus pocus required! 

 

Suds Love

Phew! Feeling the crafting burn? Time to recharge and unwind with a bit of the bubbly. The bubbly bath, that is. Craft your own bath bombs and witch fizz at M Soaps

Wouldn't this Witch Dust (bath fizz) make a fun, sugarfree treat to give your coworkers, friends, neighbors, and teachers? And maybe your friendly neighborhood blogger? *wink wink, nudge nudge ;) 

Creepy Crafty Bits

Well, perhaps "creepy" isn't the best description, but Aunt Elsie's Trinkets & Treasures is your source for unique crafting supplies!

From old keys and coins to arrowheads and badges, there are so many unsual pieces you can use to make spell books, banners, and more. Have fun setting your spooky scene! 

Mix your vintage ingredients with new finds from Simply Flowers. They have tasty delights, including candy corn beads, bitty bones, small pumpkins, and other fillers, as well as floral elements (of course!). 

 

Beyond the crafty bits, you'll find remarkable inspiration at Simply Flowers. Their handcrafted displays are so cool!
