Spider Biscornu

Okay, so I couldn't help myself could I lol. I had hoped there was a spider button lurking in my stash, but no such luck. Now I see it I think that a spider would have been too much. This was a freebie by Faby Reilly, who is fast becoming one of my favourite designers, as well as a very nice person. I am also posting this as my April biscornu for the Basket of Biscornu Challenge . yeah yeah I know, it's more suited to October, but I couldn't resist it lol. I stitched it on a piece of my own hand dyed fabric and I used some kreinik blending filament to give the cauldron contents a bit of magic!

That is so cute and the spider fabric is fabulous. What did you use to hand dye the fabric? Love the color.

Kudos on your other finishes....I know if feels good and the framed Footprints is beautiful!

Karen, I used Rit fabric dye for this one, pumpkin I think it might have been.

Nice things you make there. Thank you for looking at my blog, but my HAED, is only my 3th work yet, I just wanted to give it a try, and believe me, my fingers are sometimes stitched to it ;-)

You did such a fabulous job to add the spider fabric to the back...it looks great...well I tried that once...I mean adding patchwork fabric to the back of a Biscornu but I didn´t like how it looked then...I prefer to do it with two linen pieces instead;-))Sewing by hand....
I have this freebie in my stash too;-) Faby Reilly makes great charts...
