Wicked WIP Wednesday

Hey Cauldron Crafters!
(And welcome, WIP Wednesday-ers!)

It's been a while since my last WIP Wednesday post with Lee - I've been working like crazy on all these cool Halloween projects and didn't want to spoil any surprises, but I think it's time!

In progress:
Mostly small projects. A few trick or treat tote bags:



I have one totally done, and one that I'm stuck on the design for. Kid picked out the lining for the second one:



He loves stars. And triangles. Go figure.

Also on the cutting board are a few more pillow covers. I nabbed this rad swatch on Spoonflower's Free Swatch Day:



(Fabric available for purchase here: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/362349 )

and am pairing it up with the purple stripe from Sprinkles from Little Things and some Kona Coal... not 100% on the design yet. Any helpful hints for a pillow cover design with a central focal point like the 8"x8" swatch?

Witchy Console Runner:
Another Halloween project in the works - a runner for my tv console! I've been playing around with the (free!) gnomeling pattern from Artisania: http://artisania.wordpress.com/free-patterns/ and turning them into witches:


SQUEE! RIGHT?! I love it! I'm not sure on the design for this. It's sorta just evolving as I go. Updated photos will be in the Flickr Group!



On Hold:
Ogee - need to add my borders and applique, then baste and quilt it. I have time. It's a Christmas gift... but I've carved out a weekend soon to work on it!
KSQA - My poor KSQA keeps getting pushed down the list since it's for me - but I have an entire week of sewing coming up in October!

I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday! Her button's over  -> on the sidebar - clicky on over and visit everyone else for some comment love!
