Trick or Treat | Carta Bella | Penny Rose Fabrics | Blog Tour – Wall Hanging

On the Side.../ Uncategorized

Hey Everyone! It’s time for another blog tour and this one is super fun! I get to show you some of Trick or Treat by Carta Bella for Penny Rose Fabrics.

If you’ve followed me for awhile you know I usually, well actually pretty exclusively, only make quilts for blog tours, but I thought I’d switch it up this time.  Who doesn’t like a good Halloween wallhanging?  For this project you’ll need the following –

  • Dresden ruler
  • Rotary Ruler
  • Rotary Mat
  • Cotton Batting
  • Fusible Batting or Fleece
  • Googly Eyes
  • Black Pipe Cleaners
  • Letters ‘E,K,!” Printed on 8 1/2″ x 11″ Paper
  • Fabric – See below for requirements…note: you will have extra fabric..probably enough to make two.
    • Also note – the Orange fabric used in this project is Riley Blake Cotton Shade Basics in Tangerine and the black is Riley Blake Confetti Cottons Basics in Black.

I wanted a cart with some overhang for a ‘ironing board cover’. It also needed to be counter height or slightly higher since I’m standing 90% of the time I’m ironing.  It also had to have storage space since that was the point of the entire thing and, of course, look good.
