Rubber Duckie Door Stop

Rubber Ducky

I bought some art by Ken Greenhalgh and decided to hang them in the bathroom. Of course I needed a Rubber Ducky Door Stop to match.

Step 1: Buy generic rubber duck from Walmart and cut a half circle in the bottom.

Step 2: Stuff with river rocks.

Step 3: Hot glue the bottom closed. It doesn't have to look pretty, since no one will see the bottom, right?

Step 4: Replace current door stop

with new Ducky door stop!! (now I just need to paint the walls yellow to match)

Halloween Trick or Treat Bags

Trick or Treat Bags

I made these bags about 10 years ago when the boys were little. The bags were from one of my Dad's medical conferences that he received for free, so under the cute Halloween picture is a medical logo or slogan :)

I don't remember what fabric company this is from, but I still think it's so cute! Here is the back of each bag.

Here is the up close detailing. I put very lightweight batting under the applique and then zig zag stitched around the edges. I didn't think it looked "finished" enough, so I did a straight stitched on some of the black outline so that the design would "pop" more.
