The sun is shining.
The kids are out playing.
The dog fanangled a walk out of my wonderful nephew.
And Gorgeous George is upstairs sewing.
Day two of the Halloween Costume Bonanaza 2011.
Day one mostly consisted of us trying to figure out the best (easiest) way to complete these costumes in a timely fashion.
And I only got the stinkeye once for suggesting what *I* would do if I could sew.
Sewing I don't do, but paper I can manage.
The blogging/crafty world has been as crazy for banners for the last year as Sonny is for Coco Puffs (that bird is a prime cadidate for A&E's Intervention).
As usual I'm slightly unfashionably late to the party.
But as usual, I don't really care.
So this is what I whipped up this morning after yoga (I'm saving the story about how I discovered I wasn't really very zen for another day).
It's hard to see in the photos but there is a spiderweb background behind the letters.
Here is a download for you if you want to make it (just click on the image and it will take you to the download), it takes 2 pieces of kraft paper, some printer ink and a piece of twine - brads are optional.
The spider is unravelled embroidery thread and a glittery black brad.
I think the putting together-ness of this is pretty straightforward, just leave a comment if you have any questions.
Now I better go check on Gorgeous George, I have some really good unsolicited suggestions to lay on him.
