Who is obsessed with Moana？ All of the children I suspect. I am as well， every single song is adorable and I could decorate my whole life in rich Polynesian style. I started with some Easter Eggs done up like little Palm Trees. These were so fun to make.. find how after the jump.

First up， I brewed some strong coffee and set it in a pot on the stove. I boiled my eggs in the coffee for a long timepersonalized wedding gifts， about 25 minutes， until they had a nice brown tint.
Then I piled up a stack of green card stock. I cut it into about 3.5″； squares， then stacked 4 together and free handed some palm fronds. I used 8 fronds for each egg. I also cut a strip 5.5″； by 1.5″； and glued it into a circle.
Start with attaching four fronds equally spaced around the edge of your circle.
Attach the next four a bit higher up on the circle. Gently bend each frond outward.
Next I grabbed a few wooden beads of different sizes， and used a white paint pen to add three little dots to turn them into coconuts.
I used a dot of hot glue to attach my palm frond circle to each egg， then glued some coconuts on.
Scarlet LOVED these eggs. Now she wants to make some with hula skirts on.
Did you ever play the button game when you were little – “button, button, who’s got the button?” ?It’s funny how working on a project with something like buttons, brings back a memory like that!! ?The other night I was having a bout of insomnia and decided to use that time to get creative with buttons! ?I pulled out my glass jar of buttons and began picking out small white buttons and pale, spring colored buttons.
I welcome every opportunity to “draw” with my BERNINA 790 to make my art and lettering come to life in fabric and threads. This Halloween, create a whimsical goody bag for trick or treaters using simple sketches and personalized artwork. Make it even more special one of a kind work of art by having your favorite children provide the artwork right on the front and back of the bag. A loose, playful sketch of a pumpkin face becomes “Little Jack” ready to announce “trick or treat”! The free-motion sewn artwork pops off the black background with loose thread sketching and transforming personal handwriting into a stitched message.
