SEW Ghostly -Fantabulous Cricut Challenge

September is National sewing month, and even thou it's almost October I'm getting a bit of sewing in to celebrate.
Fantabulous Cricut is having another great challenge this week...
Create a project using some type of stitching, hand, machine, or faux stitching

I used the Paper Doll Dress Up cricut cartridge for the spider web and the ghost pg. 49, the spiders are from Doodlecharms cartridge pg. 121. For the letters I used George and Basic Shapes cartridge and used my Design Studio to weld the letters together.

I poked holes in the cut out "boo" using a piercing pad and tool.

Then used a needle and black embroidery floss (2 strands) to hand sew in the holes that I made.

Go check out all the other great projects by Fantabulous Cricut's design team -HERE.
and join us for the "National Sewing Month" challenge.
Boo to you... have a great day!
