Fall wall quilt, and pants

First off, we have some pants. I got these cargos at Old Navy dirt cheap cause someone had accidently bleached the bottoms in certian spots. The ladies at the store made double sure I knew they were damaged. I just told them I was going to mod them even more. The original color was grey. So, I used some bleach in a spray bottle, and went to town. Aftwarwards, I got all the bleach out and dyed them red with Tintex dyes I got at the dollar store.

Afterwards, I got myself a stencil, and a rub-a-dub marker (aka permenant black marker that doesnt come out in the wash) and stenciled a few things.

Secondly, I wanted a nice and colorful wall hanging for fall. Not a Hallowe'en one (believe me I have ideas for skeletons), but more of one for the harvest and Thanksgiving, which isn't all that far off if you think about it (especially since the kids go back to school in less than 2 weeks).

This one was fun to do. Thankfully it wasn't that hard to layer since I do draw in my spare time, and designed the whole thing myself with no help. The only thing I still have troubles doing is bias tape casings on the outside. It just seems very fidgity to me for some reason.
