Has anyone started sewing for Halloween yet? A couple years ago I heard some crazy statistic that Halloween is only second to Christmas for the amount of money people spend to decorate. Sounds like a good reason to make things by hand. I have been looking around Flickr for some ideas. I think I will at least try to make some bunting. How about you?

    Hallowe’en isn’t quite so huge here in the UK but it grows year on year……..

    I made bunting last year. quick and easy. I am such a non-holiday-decorator, but my son is really into it, so I give in. :) Looking forward to seeing what you make.

    I love Halloween, but I really don’t get into decorating more than a couple of bags of “spider webs”. I’m not sure why.

    I like the bunting idea, but I need to start on my Christmas bunting soon! I think I’ll probably just applique a dishtowel or two.

    I always regret we don’t celebrate Halloween, cause it looks like a lot of fun!

    I have been drooling over the Halloween “swoon” quilt, and the selvage mummy–that is SOOO amazing.

    I always say I’m going to decorate for Halloween but never really get around to it. The Bunting is definitely a good place to start. I usually stick to fall decor. When Christmas hits, that’s when I go full force and decorate every inch of my home. Love all those ideas for Halloween!

    Halloween is, by far, my favorite day of the year! I am pretty sure we even have MORE Halloween decorations in our home than Christmas, turning our whole house into a haunted home. Right now I am trying very hard to finish my Ghastlies Halloween quilt before decorations go up. Can’t wait to see what you make!
