Lets get spooky with some halloween inspired stitching. Make some macabre hoop art,

a hanging decoration or a pincushion with this simple design.

Outline the bottle shape with BACK STITCH.

Fill the bottle details using SATIN STITCH.

You will notice I have played with negative space and only stitched the reflective parts of the bottle bottle and left the main body of the bottle unstitched.

You can fill the whole bottle, or simply stitch the outline of the reflective parts. Its up to you!

Make a Decoration or pin cushion

Cut around the stitched bottle approx 1" larger than the design. Cut the same shape out from  another piece of fabric, which will be used for the back.

The dashed line I have drawn on indicates where I will be stitching. You can decide how close to the bottle you wish to stitch.

Once you have stitched around the bottle shape, turn the stitched pieces from inside out to the right way around. Next fill with stuffing until you are satisfied with the plumpness :)

(If you are making the pin cushion you may prefer to use rice in replacement of the stuffing).

Match the 2 pieces of fabric together so that both RIGHT sides of the fabric are facing in towards each other. Stitch around the edge from A to B using BACK STITCH. Remember to leave the gap at the bottom. Cut a little v shaped notch on each side at the curve of the bottle neck.

Stitch the gap closed using WHIP STITCH.


If you wish to create a hanging decoration simply stitch a ribbon at the top to hang.
