Happy Halloween!Halloween was my youngest son's favorite holiday when he was young. Not only did you get to dress up, but people then gave you candy. That was a double bonus. Now as adults, his wife loves Halloween too and their old Victorian house is decorated both inside and out with spider webs and other spooky things.
But candy isn't good for everyone, so I made my own treat for my grandson. It's a healthy treat - a candy corn toss game.
I started by making a pattern for the candy corns on white fabric.
After filling it, I sewed it shut. I created this liner so the filling would not leak out.
Then I made the outside by sewing three strips of fabric together.
I added the letters for his name with ric rak. Don't they look spooky?
Laying the bean bag on top of the background, I placed the candy corn strip piece on top and stitched around it.
This is what it lloked like from behind.
after cutting the edges with pinking sheers.
And then I found this plastic pumpkin bucket from when his Dad was little.
I think Henry will like it.
Trick or Treat!
