Hello my darlings, Mommy is back here. It really is gratifying to be able to write here for you and bring another beautiful pattern for us to enjoy. My dear readers of the blog today we come to talk about this month that is frightfully delicious, and a commemorative date that we especially love. Yes, Halloween!
As we know the famous Halloween, a tradition of ours, is also a day to decorate our house with stronger colors, today we will work a lot with the color orange, because it is the official color of Halloween, don’t you think? And to start our sequence of talks about this date we brought a beautiful and fun pattern, the Spellbinding Table Runner, yes a quilting applied on a tablecloth. Isn’t it wonderful?
For this pattern our tip is that you use traditional Halloween colors. Don’t limit yourself to just one color, vary and make several tablecloths in different colors and spread them around the house. Here we brought a beautiful example.
Well the author of this piece uses elements of the date and we want you to use your imagination, it will also be wonderful in colors to match your decor or those that you will enjoy throughout the year. However, it is so easy to make that you may want to make more than one to exchange throughout the year.
Let’s go learn this cute and fun pattern? Then get to work. We will leave here the beginning of the step by step pattern for you to get familiarized and then we will leave a link for you to see the complete pattern. Good job!
