While I was at JoAnn's before Halloween I noticed that all of their Halloween fabric was on sale (40% or 50%) so some of it was super cheap. I bought some Halloween fabric for the first time in my life with the intention of making these... and hopefully a few other fun Halloween things in the next year or two. The kids loved picking out their favorites of what I brought home. Buddy wanted the green bat fabric and Bella picked out the purple trick or treaters and my two favorite fabrics were the black/silver/sparkly spider web and candy fabric. So I put those together for the baby. I had fun cutting the shapes out of felt and doing a little embroider work. And I won't lie - sewing the spider onto the bag was a beast. It was worth it though because I love it and Bella decided it was her favorite. I think they are so cute though and the kids loved them. Even little Lou grabbed onto hers when we got in the car and didn't want to let go.
These cute Halloween totes made our Halloween even sweeter! Thanks LeAnne for the great tutorial!
We were once roommates but now are separated by many miles. We love to craft. Or at least we are learning to. This is our space to craft together. Welcome to our virtual Apartment 90.
The Monthly Challenges
Each month we'll post an idea or ideas in four categories: seasonal craft self craft child craft recipe recommendation
You're welcome to do none, one, or all! It's just a way to try and motivate ourselves to create something (hopefully) fun and rewarding. Anyone is welcome to link and share completed projects or ask questions about current projects!
I live in Northern California with my Husband and three children. I am a teach-myself kind of girl. This year I would love to learn how to bind a quilt and maybe make some jewelry.
I'm a stay at home mom of 2 little boys and am currently living in TX with my husband and kids. I mostly enjoy crafting "practical" items that will get a lot of use or serve a purpose around the home.
I'm a home mom too. I'm excited to craft with these ladies to learn new things, make some cool crafts, and enjoy long lasting friendships. "My love for us grows more and more every day! To apartment 90!"
I am lucky to stay home to care for my three adorable children. I can be crafty- if I take the time to do it. However, crafting hasn't been a priority in my life. But I do like handmade things. Mostly I like the message that handmade things send- "I love you so much that I spent time to create this just for you!"
I am a mother of 3 who loves cloth diapers, healthy cooking, and making things for my little ones. I would love to make time do more sewing, card making, quilting, and crafts that I can do alongside my children. I also teach Spanish part time at a Montessori school.
