Smell My Feet!

I am fortunate enough to be friends with two AMAZING illustrators; Jillustration and Rani from I think that their website is a MUST not only for scrapbookers, card-makers, but for QUILTERS and hand embroidery! I plan on using more and more of their designs in my future endevors. You MUST check them out! Example of how I used some of their stuff below:

I LOVED Jill's "Smell My Feet" collection and wanted to make a Halloween wall hanging with it. And the colors are perfect. So simple! If you have made any of my patterns then you know how to trace and adhere for applique. That's all I did here. After I purchased this collection, which is only $4.00 for the whole bundle - SMELL MY FEET -
I simply printed them out and then blew them up to the size I desired. If you look closely you can see my 4 white squares in the quilt. Those squares FINISH at: 8.5 x 11.  The checkered fabric I folded in half and ironed down then sewed it so it would make more of a flap for fun. This is our family's FAVORITE Halloween decoration by far! 

 Please let me know if you have any questions!



  1. zan, did you hand stitch around each letter and graphic?

    1. No I used a blanket stitch on my machine. You could also use a zig zag if you don't have that stitch. I loved her "pencil lines" too so I traced those on as well and used a regular straight stitch and a fancy one that I have that goes back and forth twice to make a thicker line. Does that help ya sugar?

  2. Oh my goodness! This is so cute and amazing! I love it and am so inspired!
    Super Hugs,

  3. That is adorable and I do love the colors.
