Birthday gifts for the C family!

I'm finally back from Illinois, and I have so much to share! I'm hoping to post about my sister's wedding shower in a few days, I'm so happy with everything came together for it. But for today I'd like to share a few birthday gifts that I made for a friend's children.
One of my childhood friends has 3 kids (ages 5, 3, and 1), all with summer birthdays. She had an amazing birthday party for the kids while I was visiting, so I made a few gifts to bring along. She requested no gifts, but I couldn't help myself!
For the 5 year old and 3 year old I made a fort kit to share (this idea was on her pinterest board, so I took that as permission to break the "no gifts" rule!):

And for each of them I made a small zip pouch filled with glow sticks and a flashlight, perfect for using in their fort!

For the baby I made a Halloween outfit (child #3 deserves a cute holiday outfit that's not a hand-me-down, right?!):

For the Halloween outfit I added a few raw edge squares to the front of a store-bought t-shirt:

And I made a simple elastic waist skirt with a ruffle trim:

I love this fabric combination so much that I created an identical skirt for Addy, and I may order more fabric so that I can make myself a pair of pj pants!

Halloween craftiness

I'm going to attempt to mush all of my Halloween craftiness into one post. Here goes!

Table topper and mug rugs:
The fabric is Trick or Treat Street from last year, designed by Sherri Berry.
I added the prairie points to look like cat ears. :)





I had so much fun with these mug rugs!  I actually made 5 others that weren't pictured.  I sent those off to a few friends from Halloween, and forgot to take pics until everything was sealed up and in my car to go to the post office. A few of these also went to friends, and a few are staying home with me (the argyle one is for Matt!). I had a lot of fun with this fabric line. And the best part is that I got the fq pack from JoAnn's!
Candy Bucket!

This candy bucket was made from Sherri Berry's halloween line from this year, Costume Club. (Can you tell I love her fabric?  It's *so* my style!) The sides are squares from a panel, which I backed with peltex for body.  The green print is the green swirl from the same line.  I also have a large rectangular panel left to sew up, but I think I'm just going to add a backing and a few hanging tabs so that I can hang it on our front door next year.
Our pumpkins!
Addy chose a Tinkerbell design, which Matt carved.  Then she did some watercolor painting on it.
I did a paisley pattern.
Matt went with a cyclopes pumpkin.
And lastly, our Tinkerbell!

With her pumpkin.
Trick or treat!
I just wish her wings had stayed up better. I used peltex between 2 layers of the super cheap JoAnn's Haloween satin, and it wasn't enough body. Oh well, at least we weren't at risk of losing an eye from the wire style wings. ;)
And one last photo, because I never post family pics. Hurray, Matt is home!!
