spider runner

No live or dead spiders were actually used for the following project. 

Left-over formal black glittery velvet found at a thrift store transformed into a table runner!  The geometric pattern pieced together made a continuous design on the entire piece.  Very spideresque – eh?  Random pieces of black cotton were used for the backing & a zig-zag top-stitch sewed all around the perimeter.

The runner can also be used for New Year’s or “dark” birthdays…  But for Halloween, add web-like accessories like this silver bowl (yes, thrift shop purchase!):

Now, I need to enlist a crafty kid to make some egg carton spiders to crawl about…
