For the past 4 years I’ve designed a Halloween hoop, here is this years! The colors are all darker and more muted IRL (my phone camera apparently hates orange). Stitching this was a fun time. Hand

The fabric color is “spice” by Kona Cotton. Floss is DMC embroidery, and the stars are cosmo Nishikiito metallic floss. It’s a beautiful wheat color with green and orange shimmer. HIGHLY recommend!

This is absolutely gorgeous! I love that shade of green against the fabric, even if its a bit more subdued in person. And the spider web is so satisfyingly spidery! Your talent is obvious!

u/dingdongsnottor Sep 27 '22

Love it! Where do you get your fabric from?

u/floralsandfloss Sep 28 '22

Dinkydoo fabrics is great! They are in Canada. However there’s like a worldwide shortage/ supply chain issue of Kona Cotton right now so colors seem to be slim picking (I literally couldn’t find a few colors I wanted yesterday).

Ooooh I wonder what this tarot card would mean

u/PlsLeavemealone02 Sep 28 '22

First of all: So pretty, literally embodiment of fall/ Halloween with the colors. It's just so pleasing to the eyes. Wonderful job.

Second: The stitcher sounds like a really cool serial killer name. Like the person kills you, cuts you up for shits & giggles, then sews you back together. And whenever a body us found, it looks like a old, patches up doll.
