HALLOWEEN Table topper TUTORIAL PART 2


This is PART 2 of my Halloween Table topper tutorial, you can find part 1 HERE

We ended on pressing your topper flat



Now we are going to...




It's up to you if you want to pin all the shapes running down the same side. I found if I pinned 2-3 rows at a time I didn't get poked as much.




Now, once you get to the bottom of a side you can either back stitch and turn to start, or just turn your fabric and continue without taking your needle out.











Now you have a great holiday table topper, Cathedral Window style..........



Below are the measurements for a variety of table toppers and baby blanket, as well as the leaf pattern
