A wee preview ... and some other stuff :D

This is what I have on my sewing table right now - can you figure out what I might be making?  :)  Hint - it's Halloweeny, and a very quick sew :D 

Here are a few Halloween goodies I've finished in the last couple of days - I needed to put a rush on them so I can deliver them to the recipients' grammie this coming weekend when we go home for Thanksgiving with my family :)

Halloween Trick or Treat tote - side 1.  Tote measures 15" wide at the top, 15" tall, and 5" deep.  The fabric is glow in the dark (at least - the package SAID it was - I haven't really tested it!)

Trick or Treat bag - side 2

Two Halloween trick or treat bags - the one on the left (9"w X 9"t X 4.5" deep) is the "reject" because I had a brain fart while sewing, and cut the lining the wrong size.  I didn't notice until I was finished, and the lining doesn't fit nicely inside.  This was to be a gift, so I made another one - the one on the right (9 1/2"w X 8"t X 5" deep) - this one worked out much nicer, so it can be gifted :)  

This is the little guy that resulted from the ingredients in the first photo :D  His little spider taggy body measures about 7" across, and the ribbons are slightly gathered, which gives them a bit of texture.   The Crazy Flamingo Lady mug is a gift from my sister (hi Sherry! See you on Saturday!) - I thought it would make a great stand for Spidey, since it's going to her youngest grandson for a Halloween gifty :D

Happily for me, the bonus for my Halloween sewing is that several of these bags qualify for Bag It @ Elm Street Quilts (hi Patty!) :)  The large Halloween tote and the two little baskety bags qualify and will be uploaded to the linky party -- and now my count of bags entered, is 11!
