wip wednesday

I neglected unpacking boxes for a little while this week to work on a couple projects. I found out on Sunday that our church Halloween party is THIS SATURDAY.  Hmm.  I hadn't started costumes yet so I started to work on those.  This is my daughter's costume so far.  Anyone want to guess what she is going to be?
I was also asked to make some lettering for a photo booth backdrop at the party.  They told me that someone else was going to bring an orange tablecloth as a backdrop and I just needed have something to hang on it.  I decided to go with bunting.
Of course when I was halfway through making the bunting I got an email saying that the tablecloth was actually going to be black and that whatever I made needed to be orange.  So here is the second attempt.  It was probably for the best since I absentmindedly ended up with a wonky "O" the first time around.
My daughter has claimed the black bunting for her room so it all worked out in the end :)

Thanks for all of your advice about my sewing machine.  I ended up calling the shop on Monday morning and telling them that I was just going to pick it up because I didn't want to wait any longer.  They then told me that they could have it ready for me in 2 hours.  Why didn't I make that phone call earlier?
Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  3. ugh I can't believe they had it for 4 weeks and only do something with it after you called! That's not very good business! The buntings are very cute...no idea what your daughter is.
