A little felt, a little glue and some spiders

Here is my first 'sewing' project.  I made small witches hat invitations.

I had to play with the size a bit until I had it jjjuuuuussstt right.  It is about 5" tall.  I put a ribbon through the middle so I could hang the invitation and the glue the spider.  It took me about an hour to get it right.  I figured with cutting it out it would take about 7 minutes per hat and I had to do 16 of them.  You do the math.

Then I had to go to Michael's with my 50% off coupon to buy more felt.  I found a witches hat streamer with eight 4" hats and a ribbon already through it.  I bought two for $3 each.  Cut them apart, tied on the invitation and glued on the spider. 

Stunningly simpler than the one I made.  And just as cute.  And no one will know.  Shhhhh.....
