Halloween Graphics:

Detailed Halloween Scene

Designer: Christina Sherrod

Halloween graphicsThis wallhanging was fun to make. I used PaintShopPro (and my photograph of a stormy sky) to create the Halloween graphics, then turned them into patterns for this wallhanging.

Applique Pressing Sheet & Free Motion Embroidery

Use an applique pressing sheet and fusible web to create these fall scenes. Free motion embroidery would add interesting detail. I didn't use it on this wall hanging, but I used it on others. See links below.

This is not as difficult as it looks. An applique pressing sheet assists in creating intricate appliques. Free motion embroidery is easy once you've had a little practice.

Blocks 1, 2, and 3 are shown below.

Wall Hanging Size

Each block measures 6.5" x 6.5". Use the blocks for a quilt, wall hanging, hot pads, tote bags or any item you wish to applique.

I will provide instructions for creating the wall hanging show at the top of the page. The wall hanging measures 10.5" x 26.5".

Supplies


Fabric
Purchase extra fabric if you plan to prewash and shrink your fabric. Amounts are assuming 42-45" wide fabric.  

Sky: 1/4 yard (you need three 6.5" x 6.5" squares)

Hills: Two pieces of 7" x 4" dark green fabric

Tree and witch hair: 7" x 7" piece of medium brown fabric

House and broom straw: 6" x 6" tan fabric (this allows a bit extra)  

Pumpkin & window interiors, plus 4 corner squares: Orange scraps (3" x 4" would be enough) plus enough for four 2.5" x 2.5" squares (total is 1/8 yard). 

Witch hat and dress, window outlines, porch, grave marker, plus 4 corner squares, binding and backing: 1/2 yard black fabric

Witch face and hand: scraps of medium green (2" x 2" is more than enough) 

Moon and Pumpkin glow: 7" x 7" piece of yellow fabric

Roof, porch roof, door and broom handle: 6" x 4" dark brown 

Witch cape: 4" x 3" piece of black sheer fabric

Ghosts: 2" x 2" white

Block border pieces (I show in Halloween print): 10 strips of fabric, each measuring 6.5" x 2.5" (1/4 yard) 

Backing: 11" x 28" (the piece is actually 10.5" x 26.5" - this allows a bit extra)

Other

Fusible fleece or batting: 11" x 28" (the piece is actually 10.5" x 26.5" - this allows a bit extra)

Fabric paints (optional): I used black, glitter yellow, glitter silver, gold and glitter gold. Choose colors you like.

Fusible web (for attaching applique pieces)- approximately 1 yard (this should allow plenty of extra) 

Stabilizer (optional - if you do any machine embroidery you will need stabilizer)

Applique Pressing Sheet 
This is a special type of sheet used for creating detailed appliques. The pattern is placed on a working surface. The pressing sheet is placed on top of the pattern, which can be seen through the sheet. Applique pieces are placed on the pressing sheet. When pieces are bonded with fusible web, they will stick to one another, but not to this sheet (they slightly stick - just enough to stay in place). When the applique is finished it is easily peeled off the sheet and is ready to iron onto your background fabric. 

Note, if you pre-wash fabric, do NOT use fabric softener. Washing will remove any sizing, which will allow for a stronger bond. I do not pre-wash and my pieces stick well. Any loose edges can be glued using applique glue.
