Halloween Stuff!

I'm the one organizing the Halloween swap on the hair forum this year; and Here's all the Halloweeny goodies I made for my swapie:

First, my big project (and fav) A Cooking Spellbook, inspired by Hocus Pokus :)

Filled with magical recipe; True Blood, Waffles Wands, Edward's Kiss, Butterbeer....

My second bag I ever make, and the most intricate! I tried making a buttercup bag... The hoppening is very narrow.... But I like it anyway ...

It's lined with Orange burlap

The inside of the Halloween couture kit, for fun (it might interest the most curious...):

one of the tiny pumpkin pincushion inside

Her fav color is deep purple, and those were so cute I bought them.

Inside are really salted pumpkin seeds... Made it look like it was coming out of Honeydukes...

I made little pouch for everything, too.

If you were wondering how I made the Spellbook;
-Reused a cereal box.
-Made a white ball out of modeling clay, stuck a teady bear eye on it (I cruelly destroy plush to reuse their eyes...)
-Shape a first layer of eyelid with red modeling clay, the nexts with newspaper+modpodge
-Newspaper for the other relief too; paint it all in brillant red, played with paint after; brown, lighter shades of red, black, etc...
-Sew along the relief I made
-Had the "silver" details.
-Modpodge scrapbook paper inside the book (so you couldn't see the big roster anymore, ahah) and hide the sewing
-attached rubans, which holds the page. I was going to handbound it but I figure it would take 3 eternity....

I'd like to add this post to Reoshell's über-super-very cool Fall linky!
