"Violet" is my second faces on fabric quilt. I decided to embellish this quilt with buttons and beaded earrings. I recently signed up for the Faces on Fabric class from Terri Stegmiller. I'm quite pleased with my two quilts. You can see my first quilt here.

This is my October postcard for Fabric in Altered Art II group. A very simple fabric postcard with fused applique cut from Halloween print. Embellished with Diamond Dust and Sharpie Marker. Edges were pinked. The postcard will be mailed to Maine today.

This fabric postcard is for a trade on Fiber Art Traders. It's a Day of the Dead postcard trade. I found this lovely fabric in my stash. Don't know where I got it but it says that it is a Folk Art Pattern from New Mexico. Very appropriate for a Mexican holiday card. I edged the skull with glitter glue and then added glitter to the red flower. Last I added the yellow flower and zigzag stitched the edge to a cardstock back.

Don't you just love this eyeball t-shirt. I made this one for one of my granddaughter. Next is a bright yellow one for the second granddaughter. I saw this on the Martha Stewart show and thought they would be fun to make for Halloween. Michaels had the shirts on sale a few weeks ago.
The instructions are available on Martha's website. You draw eyeballs on rectangles cut from a white t-shirt, draw eyes, and then paint with fabric paint. They are sewn to the inside of the shirt and then trimmed (reverse applique). The shirt has one eyeball on the center back.
It would be a fun project to do with the kids and let them paint the eyeballs but I was in a hurry to finish these before our October travels begin.
