finished jeepers creepers its candy time flat

Take a LOOK at this sweet unplanned HAPPY Project Finish...

Gracious BE...my Matilda Jane has impressed me SO!

I'm gonna let you in on a little SECRET about this Cute Halloween Project!

About a year ago...my Neighborhood Dinner Club was being hosted by our Fabulous Neighbors...

Scott and Dayna...and it was nearing Halloween!

Let me interupt this little story to give a SHOUT out for Dayna's Super Cute Etsy Shop...

Check her out...She's ONE Talented Lady!

Fabulous ONE of a KIND items to choose from!

Back to the Story at Hand...

Houston and I were invited to Scott and Dayna's Dinner Club Party...

and let's face it...

I cannot go emptied handed...

without a cute little hostess gift!

Can I get an AMEN?

With Halloween just around the corner...

I decided upon the "Jeepers Creepers...it's Candy Time"!

from Munchkyms Design (now owned by Designs by JuJu)

Holy Smokes...this is ONE Fabulous Stitch out and it is definetly a MUST have for Halloween!

I had a really nice Rich Black Kitchen Towel...

that was just PERFECT for this sweet Appliqued Design!

So...off I went, like I always do...finding the "PERFECT" spot for said design on my towel.

Marked it...

Loaded it onto my Matilda Jane...

and watched her do her THING!

Fast forward...to the end...when the design was completed...

as I took the towel off my frame and began to "clean up" the stabilizers and such...

I noticed my UNHAPPY mistake...

I inadvertantly marked the design to be CENTERED on the MIDDLE of the towel...

which was located EXACTLY where the towel would be folded in half to be rested on a Kitchen Stove Front.

Gracious ALIVE...

I simply CANNOT give this to Dayna and expect her to NOT notice the Hot Mess I just made of it!

What's a Girl to do?

Think...

Think REAL Hard!

Houston...

I have a PLAN!

Of course...I executed my plan AFTER I ran the towel a second time...

with the design located on the bottom half of the towel...

so it sat in the PREFECT Spot as it hung on the Stove Front in Dayna's Kitchen!

WHEW...ALL is right with the world...

Basically...

What I did was take the actual image...

that was stitched onto the wrong part of the Towel #1...

and cut it down to a size I wanted it to be mounted onto a sticky board...

Then I found a super cute Orange and Black plaid in my Fabric Stash...

and mounted that onto a Larger piece of sticky board...

to acheive the double mounted look...

I finished it off with a pretty black and white cording I found at Hobby Lobby in the Christmas Ribbon section...

BELIEVE it or NOT!

I wanted the backside of the second mounted Orange and Black Sticky Board to be "finished"...

so I glued a piece of Stiff Felt onto the backside...just slightly smaller than the actual board...

and that covers a multitude of "sins" on the backside...

just incase someone LOOKS!

Because you know...one of my sisters WILL...

they're SMART like that!

LOL!

I then just set the whole piece on a cute easel and called it DONE!
