What a disturbingly delightful collection of Halloween hand embroidery patterns colored with fabric crayons! Yesterday’s Charm has really gotten into the spirit of things, stitching theses treats onto tea towels. Another suggestion is to stitch these designs onto homemade trick-or-treat bags — genius! All four patterns are available as a bundle, find them at the link below.

Cats and cobwebs
Black cats? Check! Pumpkins? Check! Cobwebs? Check!
Three essentials for any successful Halloween piece are all included in one pattern! This hand embroidery art would suit an eerie quilt or look frightening if framed. Adapt the colors to suit your own home or opt for a traditional Halloween palette.
