celebrations decorate fabric halloween

Itsy Bitsy Spider

I was playing around with some new dishtowels I bought and wanted to try out this idea for a spider. I cut out the legs and just sewed them up the middle of the strip, I wanted them to fray. The body is three graduated circles all sewn one on top of the other, again leaving the edges to fray. I sewed on beads for the eyes- and Done! A new halloween dishtowel.

I’m not sure how well this will wash up. The legs are pretty thin and I think after a few washings, there might not be much left except for the sewn stitch lines. But, for now, he’s going to hang out in my kitchen. 😉

    Cute! I think even if the legs fray away, just having the stitched thread will look cute too. You'll maybe just have to thicken it up with embroidery floss if that happens. Very cute though!!

    Putting my aversion to spiders aside… I really like this! It's cute, and I really like the simplicity of it.
