☠ Great Googly Giggling Ghouls!! ☠

by | Oct 18, 2021 | 22 comments

But it’s all good! It’s Monday, day one of the Ghastly Ghouls Blog Hop, hosted by the very creative Carol of Just Let Me Quilt! And today is my day to share!! I always enjoy participating with Carol around this time every year! It’s so fun to see what everyone has created. I hope you will take some time and hop over to my fellow bloggers’ sites and find out what ghoulishness they’ve been creating! Since we don’t really decorate for Halloween, I will be passing my project on to my daughter and family so they can enjoy them!!

I like to do fun Halloween projects and I’ve been eyeing a couple of them on Shabby Fabrics website (no affiliation.) You can find kits and patterns for these projects there. When I saw these kits included fabric that glows in the dark, I knew what I would be making! LOL First is the towel holder. I’ve made towel holders before, but, like I said, that fabric was too tempting. Plus, I wanted to see how they made them. The ones I’ve made in the past are a bit different from these. This one is Here We Glow – Orange! These stitch up quickly and are really fun to make! I haven’t made a button hole in ages – at least since I got my Solaris. Unfortunately, the button hole attachment was not in the case, so I had to do it using the button hole setting on my machine. It really wasn’t a problem, but I really wanted to try out that button hole foot! And yes, my dealer got a call about that! Hopefully they will get one in soon!!

My second project was something I have been wanting to try for at least a year – ever since I saw them. Here is the Here We Glow Folded Star Hot Pad! After watching the video and reading the instructions, I really had fun making this hot pad and I’ll be making more for Christmas! The kit makes a round or square one. I, obviously, chose the square!

Since the fabric (at least the white print) is supposed to glow in the dark, I sat them out in the sunshine to really make them glow. While my picture is not the best, and the room could have been darker, you can see the “glow” fairly well! At least the pumpkin faces and stars show up well!!

These were really fun to make. I hope my daughter will enjoy using them with all her pumpkin decorations! My grandloves will think they are cool because they glow in the dark! LOL By the way, Keepsake Quilting has their glow in the dark fabrics on sale for $5 a yard, while supplies last!! (No affiliation-just wanted to share the joy!!)

Thanks for visiting today. I hope you will hop on over and visit the other bloggers scheduled to post today. You can also view my previous post to see the schedule for the rest of the week! Thanks again, Carol, for hosting this ghoulishly fun blog hop!!

    Very cute and useful kitchen items. Those fabrics are adorable.

  2. Selina

    What fun fabric and what you did with it is amazing. Haven’t seen that version of a hanging towel before. Really like the effect of the pleats.

  3. Carla

    What fun projects and perfect to add a little Halloween to your daughter’s kitchen. What a fun touch to use glow in the dark fabric. Thanks for sharing your ideas!

  4. Anorina Morris

    Great projects! I love the idea of glow in the dark fabric – definitely something the grandies will love too.

  5. Colette

    Those are awesome project and your daughter and grands will adore them. I recently mistakenly bought a template for the folded stars so you can draw on your own interfacing instead of buying the ones pre made.

  6. Leah

    These are cute. I love the glow in the dark fabric! Great projects!

  7. Joan

    I love them! Your fabrics are just so bright and Halloween giggly! LOL!! I just found my glow in the dark fabric. Now…what to do???

  8. Mary

    Very cute and I love that they glow in the dark. The kids will love them.

  9. Gail Beam

    Hi Brenda, Love all of your adorable Halloween projects and I am sure your daughter and grands will absolutely love them.

  10. Susan Nixon

    So cute, Brenda. I’m attracted to glow fabrics, too! I really like your drawer pulls that allow you to button over like that. I have to use my oven door.

  11. Denise

    So cute. I’ve never worked with the glow in the dark fabric but I’m certain when the right project presents itself that will change.

    Hi Brenda! Oh, how fun!! Wendy sent me some glow-in-the-dark fabric and I’m going to make something for the littles. I didn’t know that sunshine was the key to making it work . . . but that makes sense. Sue and her Mom and I all crowded into the laundry room to see the fabric glow. That towel is so COOL. Thanks for sharing your fun ideas. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  13. Elizabeth Coughlin

    Your projects are such spooky fun, and so useful!

  14. Kathleen McCormick

    Wonderful projects! I like towels like that and now I am tempted to add to my list of things to do. I have made those folded star potholders and they are fun. Thanks for all the Halloween fun!

  15. Karrin Hurd

    Great projects! My grandkids would love the glow in the dark too! Thanks so much for sharing!

  16. Daryl

    I like both of your projects Brenda. I made lots of those folded potholders (mine were round) back in the 1980’s from a book I still have. Seems everything comes back into style again. I love your Halloween fabrics and I have seen them on Shabby Fabrics site too. Your daughter will surely love them.

  17. sewswift

    These are so cute and would add that perfectly creepy/pretty decoration to a kitchen. That pot holder looks incredible…love it! Thank you for sharing your Halloween pretties with us!

  18. Carol Kussart

    Those are neat projects! I’m with Julia–I love that star pot holder (and have been intending to make one for a long time)! Of course, the towel is neat too. I bet your daughter and grands will love both of them.

  19. mspdesignsusa

    Very cute hot pad and towel, and the glowing fabric makes it really fun. Thanks for sharing!!

  20. Julia Schweri

    LOVE the pot holder! I love anything with the folded stars. I also love hanging towels that are tied/buttoned in place. With small children a lot of towels end up on the floor but my tied and buttoned ones always stay put.

    They are just the perfect for putting you in a Halloween mood. I am sure your daughter will absolutely adore them!
